Cool cave management swag you didn't know you needed until now

Ah, the magical powers of NCKMS swag!

When you casually flaunt these high-end accessories to your fellow resource managers, it's like bedizening your wardrobe (or cave suit) in the exclusive couture of the speleo-elite.

You practically become a walking poster session for karst perfection - with each item screaming, "I have impeccable skills and probably drink my campfire coffee with a pinky up!"

It's not just about wearing clothes; it's about ascending to a higher plane of existence where even your muddy cave gloves have a thread count worthy of envy.

Sure, we'll design some t-shirts. But the rest of the swag list is headed off the rails.

As you might imagine, these items and artwork are all subject to change over the next several months. We might even crowd-source some designs, so be sure to sign up for our mailing list to be notified of any contests.

Finally, now that you've read this far down the page, we forgive you for having to take a break to look up the word "bedizening". It's ok - we did that too.

Troglodyte Playing Cards

We have no idea what these will look like yet, but we couldn't think of hosting NCKMS in Nevada without offering some themed-out playing cards. There's a good chance the card backs will feature a cave animal of the year, but we still have some time to figure it out.

$ - TBD
  • Items will be available through our online registration system and through this website by the end of this summer.

  • Pro Tip: Do NOT bring your own playing cards into a real Nevada casino. They get very fussy about that!

h2go Essen Vacuum Food Container

It's a double-wall, stainless steel, 17 oz capacity thermos from h2go®. This thing is more rugged than your cave pack! We've been trying to beat up the manufacturer's sample, but it keeps winning. Hot things stayed hot, cold things stayed cold... and ours will have cool cave art printed on it.

Invasive Plant Species

Cheatgrass

One of the major ecological threats to the sagebrush-dominated Great Basin ecosystem is the introduction and spread of dozens of species of non-native plants. The most important of these, cheatgrass (or downy brome) covers the largest area: 25 million acres, one-third of the area of the Great Basin.
