Don’t miss this opportunity of a lifetime...This will be the first time a complete solar eclipse has been across the United States since 1918. The recreation staff will be providing ‘eclipse themed’ programs on the Saturday and Sunday leading up to the eclipse. All events will take place at the Big Bone Lick Museum. The grassy field below the Museum will be offered as a quiet, level place for visitors to view the eclipse. For safe viewing, eclipse glasses are required. The eclipse can be viewed anywhere in the contiguous USA; viewing times will vary by location. Glasses can be purchased at the gift shop for only $1.00. SOLD OUT
