Winter Lights is more than lights on a trail. It is an interactive and educational light experience that visitors control.

Walk a half mile, stopping to control lights, warm up at the fire, or gasp at the finale at the Blue Heron Overlook. Weekends through December 27. (Audubon Nature Center, 1600 Riverside Road, Jamestown; jamestownaudubon.org or 569-2345)
