Mark Twain National Forest

April 03, 2024

Mark Twain National Forest spans 1.5 million acres. More than a third of that land will be within the path of the solar eclipse on April 8. Preparations are being put in place in case large crowds of people decide to utilize the Forest as a place to view the eclipse.  The big unknown for the Forest Service, like others, is just how many people will flock to this half million acres of public land that day.
