County creates eclipse info webpage

In anticipation of next month’s solar eclipse, Clackamas County has developed an informational webpage filled with helpful tips for residents and visitors to experience a safe event.

Visit the eclipse page.

The state of Oregon expects one million visitors during the eclipse on Aug. 21. The path of totality – within which the moon completely blocks the sun – partially runs through the southern part of Clackamas County (most of the full path is south of the county).

The new webpage compiles information from various other counties, state agencies, and experts. Sections include:

The county’s Tourism and Cultural Affairs Department – branded as Oregon’s Mt. Hood Territory – also has a webpage devoted to learning about places to watch the eclipse and other tourism information.

For more information, members of the media or public may contact Community Relations Specialist Dylan Blaylock at dblaylock@clackamas.us or 503-742-5917.
