This event will educate you on all things that have to do with this rare occurrence on August 21st.

Not only that, but they want to help you get some glasses to view the eclipse. These glasses are a hot item, and stores are selling out like crazy. That's why Wessleman's wants to help you MAKE your own.

They posted the event on their Facebook page for you to check out. Here is what you can expect by attending:

Wesselman Woods Nature Center invites the public to experience The Science Behind The Eclipse! This fun & interactive program is perfect for the whole family! Kids will physically discover the science for themselves by using scale models rather than be told or lectured to. Participants will also go into orbit themselves to learn why we don’t have an eclipse every month. You’ll learn common misconceptions behind the eclipse and find out what you will really see on Monday. Also, everyone will get to make and take home their very own eclipse viewer! This event is included with regular Nature Center Admission & free to our Members.

Visit their event page on Facebook for all of the details. You won't want to miss out on this fun experience the day before the eclipse!
