Welcome! This site is set up to help you plan for your park's event on
 August 21, 2017 Total Eclipse events.
For those who remember the May 2012 Annular eclipse and the June 2012 Transit of Venus events, this eclipse will bring a large number of international eclipse viewers. Please do not underestimate the importance of early park planning, volunteers and community stakeholders.
