Hill Country Eclipse Round Table 4.25.23

04/25/2023 12:00 PM - 01:30 PM CT


Hello Hill Country Colleagues,

You are invited to participate in a Hill Country Eclipse Round Table Tuesday, April 25, from 12:00 pm-1:30 pm CDT on Zoom to discuss ongoing preparations for the annular solar eclipse and total solar eclipse, which may draw hundreds of thousands of visitors to our region in October 2023 and April 2024.

During the last total solar eclipse event in the U.S., back in 2017, many rural communities in its path were overwhelmed by the crowds and the challenges they created for local infrastructure, emergency services, lodging and restaurants, and supermarkets. However, the communities that fared the best were those that started preparing years in advance

In 2023 and 2024, the annular and total solar eclipses will pass through the middle of the Hill Country, affecting all our communities. This round table is an opportunity for us to share our plans, learn from one another, and benefit from lessons learned by others.

April's Meeting
Having just crossed the one-year threshold until the Total Solar Eclipse, it is time to catch up on what preparations are underway across the communities and throughout the region. We will forego our usual guest speaker for this meeting, giving us more time to discuss plans, ask questions and share ideas.

HCA's Eclipse Portal
Don't forget to take advantage of the Hill Country Alliance Eclipse Portal. This page has all the information you need concerning the eclipses, links to past meeting recordings, presenter resources, and more. You will find links to interactive maps, eclipse diagrams, a glossary of terms, and countdown clocks for both the annular and total solar eclipses. New content is added regularly, and we always welcome suggestions.
