Aug 14 @ 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM

Join us for a night hike for teens 13-18 years old! Hike through slightly spookier trails and see a different side of the Nature Center that not many get to see. We’ll explore the nighttime woods before meeting the famous Bug Chicks for your chance to investigate how these entomologists hunt for bugs with their insect lures and lights. Hang out with friends, then get up close and personal with some very cool insects like moths and praying mantids! RSVP by emailing Jeremy Garlock, Teen Program Coordinator, at jgarlock@cincynature.org. We will email you additional details.

$5.00 suggested donation at the door.
