Eclipse Viewing at Fair Haven Beach State Park


Join us at Fair Haven Beach State Park for a day-long event. Witness the eclipse in the path of totality with live streaming, crafts, and activities for all ages.

12-2 Sabin Hall Talks: Join Dr. Tyler Nordgren* and Environmental Educator, Josh Teeter as they give alternating, short presentations about the eclipse and the NYS Parks Centennial. Dr. Nordgren will present, See the Sun and Moon Align with You: See the spectacle that has terrified and inspired humans for millennia and is just as awe inspiring today. Josh Teeter will share why State Parks is celebrating, an overview of the last 100 years and how you can join the celebration!

12-2 Bay Shelter Activities: Join Sciencenter staff to explore why eclipses happen, investigate the future of lunar exploration, create a pocket-sized solar system, and more with hands-on space activities!

2:00pm (first contact) through totality will be hosted by Dr. Tyler Nordgren.

2:30-Totality Roving Activities: Make your own pinhole eclipse viewer, catalog the changing shadows, and more with roving activities with the Sciencenter.

End Totality - 4:30 Bay Shelter Activities resume and Facilitated Discussion.

Please dress overly warm for the weather. Fair Haven Beach State Park can be colder and windier that the surrounding area. Make sure to have plenty of water, food, and snacks for before AND after the eclipse.
