While the path of total eclipse stretches from Oregon to South Carolina, a partial solar eclipse can be enjoyed at Cane River Creole National Historical Park. Please join us at Magnolia Plantation on Aug. 21 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. for our solar eclipse event! Take part in ranger talks, citizen science, and other eclipse activities. You can make a pinhole projector and a limited number of safe solar glasses will be available. Please feel free to bring your own NASA approved solar viewers, blanket and/or chair, snacks and experience the eclipse across America.
Due to the nature of this event, weather can impede our eclipse viewing. If the weather is a concern on the day of the event, please check the park Facebook page or contact us at 318-352-0383, ext. 316 for an update.
