January 21, 2016 - Update

   Although we are closer than ever to the long hoped for reopening of Providence Mountains State Recreation Area, infrastructure issues regarding the new well are still yet to be resolved.

  The remote location of the park continues to make progress move more slowly than we would like. In the meantime, the Committee to Reopen Mitchell Caverns continues to do what it can.

   Thanks to generous (and patient!) support from the public, we have been able to finance purchases necessary to upgrade trail signage.

    In addition, we are working on designing and purchasing reusable water bottles that will be available to sell to the public so that when the park reopens we will have a "green" alternative available for providing drinking water.

Thanks to all for your patience and support!
