Junior Ranger Eclipse Explorer & Kids’ Eclipse Countdown (FREE)

The park’s Sky Ranger will discuss where, when, and how to safely view the upcoming April 8 solar eclipse.  The path of totality will cut across the United States from southwest to northeast, passing less than 30 miles from the Park.  The group will then complete selected activities in the Eclipse Explorer booklet, earning a special badge.

Children between 4-13 and their families are recommended to attend this program.

Free eclipse glasses will be available.  Click here to reserve your kids’ place to this FREE event!
