Ohio State University Extension


Note from David Civittolo

In a little over a week, we will experience a celestial event that hasn’t occurred in Ohio since 1806 – a visible total solar eclipse. As we prepare for this event, our Extension professionals have curated some resources to ensure we are well-equipped with the information we need to navigate it.

4-H youth development has developed some solar eclipse teaching tools. They can be found here — They’ve also worked with Ohio State’s Arne Slettebak Planetarium to create a video that discusses eclipse safety.

Additionally, our agricultural law experts shared some steps farmers and landowners should take to prepare for the eclipse. These recommendations aim to help landowners navigate legal concerns related to their properties, considering the expected influx of people in communities and rural areas across the state. They’re shared here.

Let’s welcome this opportunity to learn and experience something truly extraordinary.

Best, David
