Oregon Cave Restoration


This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

At the Oregon Caves National Monument, painstaking restoration work is performed by hand. When the caves became popular with tourists earlier in the 20th century, “improvements” like widened passageways and added staircases caused unintentional damage to the caves’ fragile environment.

First Broadcast: 1993
Producer: Jeff Douglas
