RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia is offering a few walks on the wild side.

Virginia Cave Week marks its 15th year starting next week and walking tours are being offered at some of the more than 4,000 known caves in the state. The guided tours are being coordinated by the Virginia Cave Board, which oversees and protects the natural attractions.

One tour involves the Mill Creek Springs Natural Area Preserve in Montgomery County. The 222-acre preserve is owned by The Nature Conservancy. The Cave and Karst Fest is also scheduled during the week. The event offers displays on geology, bats and protection efforts.

For teachers, virtual cave tours are available at https://www.vacaveweek.com
