With an influx of visitors expected for the solar eclipse on August 21, U.S. Forest Service staff remind visitors to keep the forests clean and safe. Plan ahead and prepare for the eclipse weekend, August 18 to 21. Recreation sites on the Nantahala and Pisgah National Forests are expected to be at full capacity for the eclipse so have alternative plans if needed. https://www.facebook.com/nfsnc
