Management of Subterranean Ecosystems in Extreme Environments

The National Cave and Karst Management Symposium is supported by corporate sponsors whose financial investment allows us to promote collaboration between the scientific community, the private sector, and government agencies. This symbiosis enhances the overall quality of our event, and ensures a dynamic platform for knowledge exchange and innovation.

Sponsor Integrations

Corporate collaboration between the scientific community and the private sector enables researchers and professionals to connect with industry leaders, creating a platform for the exchange of ideas, technologies, and best practices. This collaboration often results in innovative solutions to real-world problems, driving advancements that benefit both the corporate sponsors and the scientific community.

The 2025 NCKMS team would be happy to custom-design a program to provide your business the maximum of benefit and visibility. Please feel free to reach us at any time at to discuss how we might integrate your organization into our production.

Toquima Cave Pictographs

Toquima Cave pictographs

Burrowed in the Toquima Range in the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest, Toquima Cave holds massive cultural importance to Native Americans. This sacred site was utilized by the Western Shoshone tribes as a temporary dwelling between 3,000 and 1,500 years ago.

A large number of pictographs adorn the north and south walls of the cave. As one of many pictograph sites in Nevada, Toquima Cave and the surrounding 40 acres were added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.


Advance registration for the 2025 symposium is expected to open in mid-2024. We will send an email to past attendees when that system comes online.
