HISTORY OF THE FSS

Florida has a wealth of caves, carved out of the limestone rock which most of Florida is built on. In order to explore and preserve these caves, the FSS was organized in 1956. It was the first chapter of the NSS organized in Florida and the 68th overall. It has been active since its creation.
