Bear River Range Project

In the fall of 2022, the Timpanogos Grotto began a project in the Bear River range of southern Idaho, part of the Caribou Targhee National Forest. The goal of the project is to locate new caves and survey some of the larger caves in the region. Cavers from the surrounding region are encouraged to attend.

House Range Project

The goal of this project is to explore and document the speleology of the House Range in Utah’s West Desert. We've done this through documenting known caves, discovering new ones, and identifying areas of speleological potential. As of November 2022, the Timp Grotto has documented 44 caves, 11 pits, and 64 shelters. Each site is inventoried, surveyed, and photographed. We look forward to publishing our findings in the future for cavers and the scientific community.

Little Brush Creek Cave Survey

The Timpanogos Grotto is continuing to survey and push Little Brush Creek Cave, Utah's longest. Survey efforts in February of 2022 pushed the cave to 6.25 miles. We look forward to continuing the survey of Little Brush Cave during the winter of 2022 and 2023. Due to seasonal flooding, the cave is only accessible in the cold months.  Any cavers are welcome to attend.
