- Introduction: DCCB would like to invite our astronomically inclined friends to join us for a once in a life-time observance.
On Monday, August 21, 2017 Dallas County Conservation Board naturalists will be hosting an adult excursion to a natural area in northwest Missouri to view the total solar eclipse. The vehicles will leave Forest Park Museum, Perry at 7:30 a.m. and return around 5:30 p.m.
Upon arrival, the naturalists will present some educational programming, as well as encourage people to enjoy the features of the park. The eclipse will start around 11:40 a.m. with totality being reached at 1:08 p.m.
The trip is limited to 18 adults, although additional people or families with young children are welcome to caravan along in their own vehicles at no charge. Cost of $10 per person to cover transportation costs and viewing glasses must be paid upon registration.
This trip is weather dependent. Participants should dress to be outside, and bring snacks, water and money for lunch at a sandwich shop.
