Eclipse Weekend at Pfeffer Scout Reservation

August 18-21, 2017 at Pfeffer Scout Reservation

The United States hasn’t seen a total solar eclipse since 1979, and one of our Boy Scout Reservations will be a prime location to witness the Solar Eclipse of 2017. On August 21, 2017 the Phil Pfeffer Scout Reservation located in Benton, Kentucky next to Land Between the Lakes will experience nearly 2 minutes of totality. The Lincoln Heritage Council will be hosting a weekend-long celebration of eclipse activities, exhibitions and shows all leading up to solar eclipse totality which occurs at 1:23 pm on Mon., Aug. 21. The event will feature education seminars featuring experts with the Louisville Astronomical Society. This once-in-a-lifetime event will leave a lasting Impression on your Scouts!
