Light in the Forest

A New Winter Tradition

December 3 – January 3, Thursdays through Sundays, 5-9 pm

This December, experience Cincinnati Nature Center in a whole new light—Light in the Forest!

The softly illuminated trees and paths will include three installations by OBLSK, a participant in Cincinnati’s popular BLINK event. Throughout the walking tour, you will enjoy music, bonfires, holiday shopping, and the historic Krippendorf Lodge and Abner Hollow Cabin adorned in period decorations!
