October 13 Gibraltar Talks will present “The Caves of the Door Peninsula,” featuring two lifelong cavers – Bob and Dave Bultman. Their PowerPoint slideshow will highlight the geology of the rock beneath Door County, discuss cave formations and the county’s drinking water.

Bob Bultman is a lifelong student of the natural sciences and an active outreach educator with the Niagara Escarpment Resource Network. He was introduced to caving at an early age by his father. Bob went on to earn a Geosciences degree from UW – Madison. From his home in Baileys Harbor, he runs Restore Ecological Services, specializing in environmental education, natural property management, invasive species control and biodiversity enhancements.

Dave Bultman, Bob’s father and caving partner, is a retired Green Bay firefighter who now lives in Fish Creek. He has been active in many organizations such as The Clearing, Door County Land Trust, and Green Bay Botanical Gardens. Dave co-teaches with his son at The Clearing. He was first in Horseshoe Bay Cave in 1958 and has spent a lot of time digging in Ledgeview Caves in Chilton.

“The Caves of the Door Peninsula” will be held at 7 pm at the Old Gibraltar Town Hall on the corner of Spruce and Maple streets in Fish Creek. The program is free and refreshments will be served. Free will donations are appreciated. For more information call 920.493.4279.
