Event Details

Registration Requirements: Preregistration required.  

Intended Audience: Children must be accompanied by an adult. The program may not be suitable for children with early bedtimes.  

Program Description: Did you know there are many species of fireflies in Ohio, and some of them are cannibals while others don’t even light up? Join us for a leisurely hike as we learn about these delightful creatures and discover the magic of an evening firefly show. 

What to Expect: Terrain covered will be mostly flat and we’ll move at a leisurely pace. 

For more information, please see How to prepare for a night hike.

Where to Meet: Registered participants will meet at the Creekside Barn at our Long Branch Farm and Trails location.  Due to bridge damage, the main entrance is temporarily closed. For this program only – we’ll have you come in our alternate entrance:

  • Give yourself extra time.
  • Set your GPS for 1600 Fay Road (it’s on top of a hill).
    • The entry has some trees around it.
    • Look for farm gates with a small Cincinnati Nature Center sign on the gates.
  • Note that this is a long, single lane gravel driveway with a couple places to pull to the side to allow cars to pass.
    • Do not pull off the driveway (we want to be sure you don’t get stuck in the field).
    • Please park in the main Creekside Parking lot.
  • With the site being closed, there shouldn’t be any traffic coming the other way but do drive slowly anyways, especially on the curves.
  • Long Branch Farm and Trails is officially closed until further notice – other than this program session, please do not visit the site on your own.

Cost: Program fees include daily admission.
