Support our "Camera Campaign"!  Help us raise money for a top-of-the-line close-up camera to help share images of the caverns and local wildlife.  Mitchell Caverns supports a fascinating diversity of desert life including cave insects, desert tortoises, wildflowers and more. Help us document this amazing biodiversity!

Your contribution will help us  purchase  an  Olympus TG-5 camera, total cost approximately $500.00. This Olympus camera is known for the toughness necessary to handle the rugged conditions at Mitchell Caverns and can serve a variety of park functions.

The photo below was taken with an Olympus TG-5. It is a close-up photo of our endemic Niptus beetle that was taken on the "Microscope" mode of this camera.  (Photo courtesy of Jennifer Hopper.)
