This is a two-week, come-and-go-as-you-please workshop hosted by artist Dennis McNett. McNett has held these workshops across the country in which participants create wearable sculptures in the form of full head coverings. There is no fee and all supplies will be provided. These workshops culminate in a procession with McNett’s 12-foot puppets and costumes, happening this year on Hot Dog Day.

Total Solar Eclipse 2024!

On Monday, April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse will cross over the WNY Wilds! This is a once in a lifetime event and we are lucky to be in the coveted path of totality. During a solar eclipse, the Moon’s shadow covers the Sun, creating a shadow zone where the phenomenon can be observed. When a total eclipse occurs, the area where an eclipse can be seen is referred to as the “path of totality”. Totality is the duration of total obscuration of the sun or moon during an eclipse. Unless you’re on this path you’ll only see a partial eclipse. Get yourself in the path of totality! Check back often for all your 2024 Total Solar Eclipse updates!!
