Grand Tetons - Total Solar Eclipse

August 15-23, 2017

We invite you to join us on this fascinating adventure in the American West, including seeing the Total Solar Eclipse atop Rendezvous Mountain overlooking the Grand Tetons!

On this expedition we will discover fascinating natural history and prehistoric sites from Boise to the Tetons. We will learn about one of the greatest floods ever to occur in North America, plus prehistoric fossils beds along the Snake River and the volcanic world of Craters of the Moon and Yellowstone National Park!

At the The Peregrine Fund’s World Center for Birds of Prey, we will see endangered raptors from North and South America that they are breeding to help preserve the species, including California condors. We will also learn about the Peregrine Fund’s spectacular results in bringing peregrinefalcons back from near extinction.

We will follow the course of the Snake River (the prehistoric drainageway of the Pleistocene Great Salt Lake) to Hagerman Fossil Beds National Monument which is one of the most important fossil sites in the world. Near Pocatello, we will learn about the 2014 discovery of an intact Mammoth skeleton in American Falls Lake.

Our journey will continue to the innovative engineering and research lab near Idaho Falls for a special presentation about their research.

We will then cross into Jackson Hole to enjoy the scenic wonders and wildlife of Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks and a Wild West rodeo.

The trip will culminate atop 10,450-foot Rendezvous Mountain where we will see the Total Solar Eclipse overlooking Jackson Hole and Grand Teton National Park. We will ride in the new cable cars 4,000+ feet above the valley floor, with an incredible 360-degree view of Jackson Hole and the Tetons, and Yellowstone National Park to the north. In this incredible setting, we will see the Total Solar Eclipse in all of its glory!

We hope you will join us for an unforgettable adventure!
