The Windy City Grotto is an internal organization of the National Speleological Society.
We are dedicated to the exploration, preservation and conservation of the subterranean ecosystem. Our membership includes individuals at all experience levels. We welcome anyone who is concerned with the conservation and care of these fragile cave environments, and who wish to pursue a safe and rewarding caving experience.
Meetings are held every second Wednesday of the month at 7:30 P.M. The location of these meetings will alternate from one month to the next so as to accommodate both of our suburb and city dwellers. Odd numbered months will be held at Aurelio’s Pizza, located at 1455 W. Lake St. in Addison Illinois. Even numbered months will find our meetings at DrumFace, 3231 W. Armitage, Chicago. The Pizzeria is located at the Southwest corner of the Centennial Plaza shopping center, next door to the Marcus Cinema. DrumFace is located in the Logan Square neighborhood. Our meetings feature business, announcements, and programs (slides, video, narrative) on recent caving trips or cave related topics.
