To protect the spectacular but fragile ecosystem, entry into Lechuguilla is restricted to exploration and science.

The exhibit includes outstanding images from photographers David De Roest, Michel Renda, Daniel Chailloux, and Peter and Ann Bosted. Photos will be displayed at Mesa Public Library and PEEC. A short movie will also be played at PEEC in conjunction with the exhibit, during open hours and by appointment.
