Eclipse On August 21, 2017, Southern Illinois will become the eclipse crossroads of America.  SIU's Touch of Nature is right in its path as well and we offer all sorts of unique opportunities to experience it in our pristine natural setting. 

Touch of Nature is now 100% booked for the August 21 Total Eclipse.  Guests will enjoy food, lodging and a host of activities.  Just because we're booked, it doesn't mean there aren't a lot of other things going on.  Stand by for Breaking the Surface, the Buffalo Tro, the Haunted Hollow and a whole lot more.  Get in Touch.
