For those Passport to your National Parks (c) stamp collectors visiting the park the day of the eclipse, August 21, 2017, we have a special treat for you.

The 2017 Eclipse Across America is less than one month away. We are excited to offer a safe and fun location to experience the eclipse on August 21, 2017. We want to remind you never to look directly at the sun. One way to view the sun safely is through solar filters or "eclipse glasses." The filters will protect your eyes from serious injury. While the park has a limited supply of "eclipse glasses" and pinhole projectors, we suggest you plan ahead and prepare so that you and your family can fully enjoy the eclipse whether you are directly in the path of totality or anywhere else in the continental United States.
