As the moon passes between the earth and the sun, its shadow will darken the sky, plunging large swathes of the United States into sudden twilight, but there's only one place you can see it from an eagle's nest measure 10 feet wide.
Experience this celestial tango first-hand from the award-winning, all-persons experience, Wild Walk. Traverse a trail of bridges to the treetops of the Adirondack forest. Visit a four-story twig tree house, swing on bridges, clamber over a spider’s web or climb to the full-sized bald eagle’s nest at the highest point. Naturalists will be on hand to help answer your questions about all things solar.
Commemorate this once-in-a-lifetime event with special edition Wild Center gear.
Free Wild Center eclipse glasses are included with every purchase.
