The waitlist is full. No walk-ins on April 8th.

Join us in the Path of Totality during the Total Solar Eclipse! We may not see something like this in Niagara until 2144! Spend the afternoon learning about Solar Eclipse’s and enjoy a wide open space to view the Eclipse.

10AM: Gates open for ticket holders only. NO walk-ins on the day.

12PM – 2PM: In partnership with the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada: Niagara Centre, there will be a variety of interactive stations where your group can explore this cool phenomenon.

2PM – 4PM: There will be several viewing stations to see the Eclipse in action; during this time we will also have a live-stream playing in our nature centre to provide safe viewing for those who struggle with keeping their glasses on.

Price: $15.00 per car (no more than 6 passengers). The ticket cost provides you with 1(one) parking spot at Heartland Forest, and access to our fun eclipse programming.

Walking groups are welcome to purchase tickets which will be sold as a group of 6 walkers or less. Tickets are not for sale on the day of the event and walk-ins will not be permitted.

This event is open to participants of all ages and abilities. For safety reasons we encourage parents and guardians only to bring children/participants who can reliably wear the solar eclipse glasses for the duration of the event.

Safety Consideration: It is crucial to protect your eyes during the Solar Eclipse. Looking at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed Sun through dark sunglasses or any other unapproved filter (like a camera lens) is a recipe for serious and permanent eye injury

Heartland Forest recommends using certified solar viewing glasses during the event.

Pick up your ticket for the event and solar viewers:

  • Starting Monday, March 18th Monday-Saturday
    • 9AM-4PM during business hours
  • Extended hours are offered on Thursdays
    • March 21 and 28th: 9AM-6PM
    • April 4th 9AM to 7:30PM
  • If you are inside the path of totality on April 8, 2024, remove your solar filter only when the Moon completely covers the Sun’s bright face and it suddenly gets quite dark. Experience totality, then, as soon as the bright Sun begins to reappear, replace your solar viewer to look at the remaining partial phases.
    • Note that this applies only to viewing without optical aid (other than ordinary eyeglasses). Different rules apply when viewing or imaging the Sun through camera lenses, binoculars, or telescopes; consult an expert astronomer before using a solar filter with any type of magnifying optics.
  • Outside the path of totality, and throughout a partial solar eclipse, there is no time when it is safe to look directly at the Sun without using a special-purpose solar filter that complies with the transmittance requirements of the ISO 12312-2 international standard.
