Local caver Mike Warner will share his presentation on China's Supercaves. Mike traveled to China in 2013 with National Geographic as a photographic and logistics assistant to a British team using cutting edge technology as they laser mapped the caves. (Click to tour the cave's 3-D model created from the laser scan.) The team’s journey was documented in the July 2014 issue of National Geographic Magazine.
