Visiting Aullwood

Location, hours, and all the information you need for an enjoyable visit to our Center, Farm and Sanctuary

Locations and Directions

Aullwood consists of two major locations, Aullwood Nature Center and Aullwood Farm, connected by six miles of walking trails running through our beautiful 200 acre nature sanctuary. You can begin your visit at either site, then enjoy a scenic walk in the Nature Sanctuary along trails leading to the other location or take a quick five minute car trip there instead. Your payment at either location pays your admission to both.

Aullwood Nature Center is located at 1000 Aullwood Road, Dayton, OH 45414. Aullwood Farm is located at 9101 Frederick Pike, Dayton, OH 45414.

Hours and Admission

Aullwood is open Monday through Saturday from 9 AM to 5 PM and Sunday from 1 PM to 5 PM. We are closed on most school holidays.

General admission is $5 for adults, $3 for children 3-18, and free for children under three. Members of Friends of Aullwood (our support group) and National Audubon Society receive free admission with membership card.

Field guides and birding, ecology and Ohio related books are all topics carried in our book department, along with activity, pop-up and board books for children. All store proceeds help support Aullwood's programs and help us preserve the sanctuary.
