The Cincinnati Nature Center is adding a new illuminating experience this winter: Light in the Forest.

The 1-mile walk-thru light display will "sparkle with gentle lights reflecting a theme of peace, tranquility, and inspiration," says the center.

Walking trails and nature paths will be artistically lit and will feature three light installations by OBLSK, a creative agency that took part in the BLINK art and light festival. The Krippendorf Lodge and Abner Hollow Cabin will also be decked-out in "period-specific decorations," says the center.

All this will be complemented by live music, bonfires and shopping opportunities.

Held 5-9 p.m. Thursdays through Sundays from Dec. 3-Jan. 3, guests need to pre-register for a certain time slot. Tickets are $12 for adults and $7 for children with discounts for Cincinnati Nature Center members.

Capacity limits are in place due to COVID and the center says "all adults and children Kindergarten age and up must wear masks."

A Light in the Forest trail map will be available at cincynature.org soon.

Until then, you can register for time slots and purchase tickets at cincynature.org.

The Cincinnati Nature Center is located at 4949 Tealtown Road, Milford.
