The Auburn Journal should be proud to report the turnout of people for the presentation of latest information regarding Hawver Cave given by Gene Lorance Friday, Nov. 4 in the Auburn Library’s Beecher Room. Those who got an early seat and those who unfortunately were turned away due to lack of room were hungry to hear the scientific evidence and stories from the foremost expert on this cave. Everyone was given a thorough education regarding Dr. Hawver and his scientific pursuit of the cave and its contents around the early years of the last century. This led to the current efforts of the California Department of Parks and Recreation managed by Mr. Lorance keeping the integrity of the cave very few have had a chance to experience on a first-hand basis. Everyone in the Auburn area and beyond should take notice of this gem that we have in our “backyard.” To hear Mr. Lorance speak of the incredible facts and findings of the cave is something that everyone in the area should experience.
