Where will your eclipse experience be? Come watch in the woods with us and experience this total solar eclipse in a nature setting.
Sesqui is in the “Path of Totality” and viewers will see the total solar eclipse for over 2 minutes. See how nature reacts to this phenomenon too! We will have an information booth set up where visitors can learn basic eclipse facts, safe viewing tips and even make a fun eclipse-themed craft. Bring your solar glasses or purchase a souvenir pair from us! Other souvenirs will be available for purchase as well. We strongly recommend carpooling as we are expecting large crowds.
Guided Eclipse Paddle – Reserve your spot starting July 1 to view this once in a lifetime event from the water as we paddle the lake. Participants may bring their own kayak or canoe or a limited number of canoes and kayaks will be available for use during the eclipse for folks looking for that unique vantage point! Participants will meet the ranger guides and be outfitted at the CCC Boat House. Enjoy a group paddle around the lake, pausing in the center of the lake to view the total eclipse and return to shore by 3 pm. Life jackets and paddles are included. This program is for ages 16 and older only. Note: *Pedal boats will be available for ADA access needs only on a limited basis.
