Viewing the Solar Eclipse in Your Charleston County Parks
August 21, 2017
Open to all fitness levels, this program will offer yoga in the sun’s shadow and with views of the harbor as Charleston prepares to go dark during the eclipse. SunShadow Yoga will be instructed by Beth Cosi and feature live music by McKenzie Eddy. Participants who register by August 1 will receive a free pair of eclipse-viewing glasses.
Very little is known about how wildlife responds to a total eclipse. The public is invited to join a naturalist to tour Caw Caw and explore how wildlife responds to this once-in-a-lifetime celestial event. Viewing glasses will be provided.
August 21, 1:30-3:30 p.m. at Caw Caw Interpretive Center
The City of Isle of Palms will host an eclipse viewing event on Front Beach. Leading up to the eclipse there will be out-of-this-world music by DJ NattyHeavy on the beach behind the Windjammer. Plane Jane will take the stage following the eclipse to celebrate this incredibly rare event. Children's entertainment will be available in the Isle of Palms County Park, and eclipse information will be provided throughout the event.
August 21 on front beach Isle of Palms. Children's entertainment will be available at Isle of Palms County Park.
Other CCPRC parks and facilities are great spaces to safely view the solar eclipse, however, we encourage all park visitors to be parked and in place well before total darkness (expected to occur at 2:38 p.m.) Any unprotected view of the sun, even in an eclipse, can damage eyesight, so we recommend that all people wear Solar Filtered Glasses or another certified material for solar viewing.
