1. A Year on the Edge

Experience 20,000 acres of Ohio wilderness through the photographer's lens with this new exhibit at the Museum of Natural History & Science at Cincinnati Museum Center (1301 Western Ave., Queensgate), which features nearly 100 framed photographs captured over the course of all four seasons. The Richard and Lucille Durrell Edge of Appalachia Preserve System, located in Adams County, is home to hundreds of plant and animal species, from Allegheny woodrats, wolf spiders, mussels and bobcats.

As well as photographs, you'll also find display cases filled with specimens of some of the animals that live there, including bobcats, flying squirrels, foxes, a variety of birds and a collection of research tools – including a plant press and notebook from trailblazing naturalist Dr. E. Lucy Braun. The museum center is open 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Thursday-Monday. The exhibit is free with paid museum admission: $14.50 adults, $13.50 ages 60-up, $10.50 ages 3-12, and free for museum members and children under the age of two.
