Homeschoolers at Minnewaska presents, So, What’s a Solar Eclipse?


Join Josh Grosse, Student Conservation Association/AmeriCorps Environmental Educator, 1-3 p.m. Thursday, April 4 for a program about the incredible celestial occurrence, a solar eclipse. April 8, 2024, marks the longest solar eclipse in one hundred years. So how exactly does an eclipse happen, and why? Those questions and more will be answered plus a discussion on the history and myths of eclipses and the roles of the sun and moon. The group will also make their own special viewing boxes so they will be able to safely experience the eclipse, later in the week. This program is recommended for children between the ages of seven to twelve years old, accompanied by a parent or guardian over the age of 18. Well-behaved younger siblings are always welcome. Meet at the Lake Minnewaska Visitor Center, 5281 Route 44/55, Kerhonkson. Preregistration is required by calling Minnewaska at 845-255-0752.
