Meet the 2021-22 Cave Spring Association Board of Directors

The Cave Spring Associations are the caretakers of Cave Spring Park in partnership with Jackson County Parks + Rec.

The Association was founded in 1976 by a group of locals committed to preserve the park’s beauty and historic contents.

The Association entered into a partnership with Jackson County Parks + Rec in the 1980s and since then it has only gotten better.

The Board is made up of volunteers who find the time, energy and effort to preserve this hidden little forest.

The Board meets quarterly and has a one year apprenticeship program for those who wish to join it.  All successful graduates of the apprenticeship program are invited to the join the board.

The Association is always looking for volunteers who maybe want to help but cannot commit to year round service.  Please use our contact form below if you are interested in either.
