An Aullwood membership can also be a great deal for you! Memberships are especially beneficial to local Miami Valley families and neighbors who come to the nature center or farm more than once a year. If you are a two parent family with two children and visit Aullwood just three times a year, you are already spending the cost of a yearly membership without getting all the extra benefits of joining!

Aullwood's serene sanctuary, nature center, and sustainable farm is centrally located and easy to access, just twelve miles north of downtown Dayton and three miles west of the Dayton International Airport. In addition to unlimited general admission throughout the year, your Friends of Aullwood membership includes free admission to Apple Fest, discounts at our Nature Store & Gift Shop and at the Farm, and many other perks. See the membership brochure at the bottom of this page under "Downloadable Resources" for more benefits.

Your Friends of Aullwood membership also provides critical support to Aullwood’s mission to serve over 58,000 students with exceptional education programs in nature, farming and conservation. Your membership enables us to maintain the 200 acre nature sanctuary and continue the natural legacy started in 1957 when Marie S. Aull established one of the Midwest’s first nature centers with a gift of land to the National Audubon Society. In short, your membership makes Aullwood’s mission possible.

Aullwood does not receive support from tax dollars. Our funds are raised through admission, tuition, special events, grants and contributions, rentals, membership, store and farm sales and endowments. Your support of Aullwood makes it possible for us to serve our community and offer life-changing programs.Thank you for your support and for being part of the Aullwood family!
