TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE EVENT FOR GENERAL PUBLIC

An extremely rare total solar eclipse is coming to the United States on August 21, 2017. Only 14 total solar eclipses have touched U.S. soil in the last one hundred years, the last one occurring in 1991. The Crane Trust is located on the path of totality, which means guests at the Crane Trust will see what is perhaps one of the most phenomenal sights, being able to view totality bare-eyed in this thin path and for one of the longest durations than anywhere else in the path. If you’re not in the path, even by only a mile, you will miss the total eclipse.

Individuals fly to the remotest deserts, frozen lands and desolate islands just to be in the path of a total eclipse, but not our guests. Come to the Crane Trust Nature & Visitor Center (9325 S Alda Rd, Wood River, NE 68883) on August 21, 2017 to hear a live speaker and witness the total eclipse.
