2017 Eclipse Family Day

Current plans are for an all day family friendly event on Sunday, August 20th.  To include educational programming, food vendors, exhibitors etc.  For the actual Eclipse we are making plans for educational programs, live streaming from PARI and special viewing areas.  We think this will be  the biggest event the park has hosted to date.   Friends of Gorges is the main event sponsor and the  park is serving as the host and co-organizer.
