The Big Canoe POA Programs & Events Committee is sponsoring a day trip to the Tallulah Gorge State Park which is in the direct path of the eclipse on Monday, August 21st. The partial eclipse will begin after 1 p.m. The total eclipse begins at 2:36 pm and will last for 2 minutes and 21 seconds, one of the longest viewing periods in the state.

The cost of the trip is $30 per person and will include transportation, admission, and viewing glasses. The bus will depart Wildcat Recreation at 11:00 a.m. and return at approximately 6:00 p.m. Non-refundable tickets can be purchased by contacting Kim Cooper at This email address is being protected from spambots.

The next total solar eclipse will occur in the mainland US in 2024 and in Georgia in 2045.
