Cave and Nature Preserves
Preserves located throughout Texas
Texas Cave Management Association owns and manages numerous caves, nature preserves, and karst regions across Texas with thousands of acres under its care.
Some of these caves are open to the public during special events, such as Robber Baron Open House in San Antonio and Cave Day in Austin. Other caves are closed to visitation to protect the endangered species that live in these caves.
TCMA does allow access for educational trips, scientific research, service projects, and more. If you are interested in visiting a preserve, please submit a request on our Contact Us page or contact the Preserve Manager directly.

To ensure safety and help prevent the spread of COVID-19, our preserves are closed to public visitation until further notice.
If you are scheduled to visit one of our preserves and need to sign a release and waiver form, particularly for minors who might not have a parent present, you can print and fill out one these forms.
