Where to get free glasses

Know Where to Go

Please be aware of where you plan to watch the eclipse. Most land in Texas is privately owned and not accessible to the public. If you see a fence, don't hop it. Please obey "no trespassing" signs. For everyone's safety and an enjoyable experience, plan ahead and be aware of where you are.

Landowners are encouraged to learn how they can prepare for the Eclipse with this podcast from Texas A&M AgriLife Extension: Ag Law in the Field #158.
