The Forest Service recreation, geology, and watershed programs have key roles in cave and karst management, helping the agency administer 192 million acres to effectively achieve its mission of "Caring for the Land and Serving People." The Forest Service recognizes that caves are a sensitive resource and must be protected, balancing surface resource managment and cave use with the protection of cave values. Caves can be locations of sensitive wildlife or cultural resources. In order to protect this valuable resource, the Forest Service does not release information about the locations of specific caves under Forest Service management.
