The West Kentucky 4-H Camp in Dawson Springs is in the direct path of a total solar eclipse that will occur Aug. 21. Kentucky 4-H is taking this rare opportunity to host a Solar Eclipse Camp there so young people cannot only view the historical event but learn the science behind it.

The last time a total solar eclipse was viewable from the contiguous United States was in 1979, when it passed through the Northwest.

During natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and winter storms, animals are especially vulnerable, and they rely on humans for help. The University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment is hosting the Multi-Jurisdictional Animal Resource Coordination Exercise 2017, a virtual exercise for animal responders across the United States. The exercise will take place July 11-12 and repeated on July 13-14. It will focus on disaster response for pets, livestock and horses, captive wildlife and laboratory animals.
