Niagara Glen, Niagara on the Lake
Solar Eclipse Viewing
Please note we are currently fully booked for guided viewing tours, including eclipse viewing glasses.
Experience History With Us!
Join us on Monday, August 21 from 1 PM – 3 PM and enjoy the solar eclipse from the new Niagara Glen Nature Centre. Take part in guided viewing tours with special protective glasses, crafts for kids and light refreshments, all with a panoramic view of the Niagara River under the dim light of the eclipse.
Pinhole Camera Workshop
Nature Centre staff will help children make their very own pinhole cameras to safely view the eclipse! This workshop is free of charge.
Naturalists will help visitors safely view the solar eclipse using special protective glasses. Remember, never look at a solar eclipse without proper equipment.
The Nature Exchange
The all-new Niagara Glen Nature Exchange is a free, interactive program that encourages visitors to explore nature and share their knowledge. Through the practice of responsible collecting, visitors can trade natural items, photos, rubbings or drawings they take on their travels throughout Niagara Parks for points to trade toward anything in the Nature Exchange.
During our solar eclipse event, and all weekend long, complete a special quiz and receive bonus points to top up your account.
