A non-profit, volunteer organization dedicated to the discovery, exploration, and conservation of caves and karst in the midwestern United States.


KCAG Monthly Meetings

The grotto hosts a monthly meeting open to members and visitors alike. At the meetings we discuss current caving issues, upcoming trips, and hold presentations on caving-related topics. After each meeting we head over to Waldo Pizza @ 75th & Wornall for or pizza and/or beer. These business meetings, and especially the gatherings afterward, are the perfect opportunity to meet the members of the grotto – the first step toward getting invited to do some Missouri wild caving.

Meeting Location

Grotto meetings are held at the Arthur Mag Conference Center at 4920 Cherry St., Kansas City, MO. This facility is behind the large MRI Global building next to the UMKC campus, on the South side of the parking lot. The meetings start at 7:00 p.m. on the second Wednesday of the month, with the exception of June and December, when we have a grotto picnic and Christmas party respectively. Check the grotto calendar or send us an email for more information on the upcoming meetings and events.

Our meetings are held at the MRI Arthur Mag Conference Center, near the UMKC campus. The parking lot entrance is SE of Volker & Cherry (marked as A).
