Solar Eclipse Paddle August 21, 2017

The Cache River is in the path of totality for the Great American Eclipse! Observers, there will see (appx.) 2minutes 28s of totality! Come join us for a Cache River Canoe Solar Eclipse Tour like no other! We will set out on the swamp in the early morning- the perfect time to witness dozens of warblers, great blue herons, cormorants, egrets, kingfishers, and eagles. Southern Illinois is at the apex of the viewing area of longest duration of totality and will occur at 1:20 pm on the Cache River. What better way to experience it by canoeing through an ancient cypress swamp? During the tour, a presentation will be given from our professional naturalist’s guides about solar cycles and lunar eclipses. Additionally, we will share stories from around the world pertaining to beliefs and customs surrounding these solar and lunar events. Followed by a catered meal of grilled hamburgers, veggie burgers, and hot dogs. The trip will be for the duration of 4-5 miles.
