All are in­vited to this free event to hear the ad­ven­ture and to learn the stories of how the caves were found and be­came a na­tional mon­u­ment, while view­ing his­tor­i­cal pho­to­graphs taken decades ago.

Ranger BJ Cluff is the su­per­vi­sory park ranger at Tim­pano­gos Cave Na­tional Mon­u­ment. She was born in Salt Lake City and raised in Utah County, vis­it­ing na­tional park sites all over the coun­try with her fam­ily.

By age 12 she knew she wanted to be a park ranger when she grew up so that she could al­ways be out­side and share these spe­cial places with oth­ers. She firmly be­lieves in, loves, and cher­ishes these amaz­ing sites that be­long to ev­ery­one and tell Amer­ica’s story.

BJ grad­u­ated from Utah Val­ley Univer­sity with a de­gree in Earth Sci­ence/ En­vi­ron­men­tal Man­age­ment. She and her hus­band, Ger­ald, have been mar­ried 31 years and have four sons and one daugh­ter. BJ also shares her home in Provo with a three-footed dog, a grumpy cat, a noisy cock­atiel, and a para­keet.

Tim­pano­gos Cave ex­pert BJ Cluff will speak about the cave’s his­tory and other in­ter­est­ing facts at the Springville Se­nior Cen­ter on June 7.
