Aullwood has now reopened to the public! Beginning January 2, Aullwood's hours will change due to the surge in local COVID cases. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Aullwood will be open via the entrance at Aullwood Farm at 9101 Frederick Pike. We will be open 9 AM to 5 PM Friday and Saturday and 1 PM to 5 PM Sunday. All of Aullwood's trails are accessible from the farm. Aullwood's Nature Center remains closed to all at this time. On Monday through Thursday ONLY from 9 AM to 5 PM, when Aullwood Farm is closed, Aullwood's Nature Center parking lot at 1000 Aullwood Road will be open to the public for free admission to Aullwood's nature center trails. (Please note that vehicles left in the lot after 5 PM will be locked in.) No public restrooms will be available anywhere onsite Monday through Thursday, and Aullwood Farm and the farm trails will be closed Monday through Thursday.
All of our native animals as well as our signature Nature Store and Gift Shop have relocated to the farm at 9101 Frederick Pike for your enjoyment. Come see the animals’ new habitats and enjoy the expanded selection of products for sale in our store including grass fed beef, all natural eggs, sustainably-raised pork and local dairy products! (Find out more about our current offerings on our Farm Products page.) Purchases may be made with credit card, check or cash.
We have recently added almost two miles of new trails for you to explore at Aullwood Farm. Bluebirds, Indigo buntings, red-winged black birds, and flocks of Goldfinches can be seen along these new trails. We have even spotted Wild turkey and Northern bobwhite! See our updated trail map for details. Please note that the new farm trails are open only when Aullwood Farm is open, 9 AM to 5 PM Friday and Saturday and 1 PM to 5 PM Sunday.
General admission is $10/adult and $7/child. Members of Friends of Aullwood and National Audubon Society are admitted free. We are closed on most school holidays. Please call 937-890-7360 for more information.
=== IMPORTANT INFORMATION AND GUIDELINES ===
Aullwood is following the recommendations from government officials, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Audubon Society. Guidelines are subject to change should new mandates come out. The safety of our members, guests, volunteers and staff is our top priority.
- If you or someone in your household is sick, stay home. Do not visit Aullwood if you have a fever, persistent cough or shortness of breath.
- We will follow social distancing rules and ask that family groups keep at least a 6-foot distance from other people.
- Masks are required when inside any building. In the event that you are in a smaller space outside, masks will also be required.
- Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer before and after your visit.
We have made key changes to our facilities and operations in consultation with the Ohio Department of Health, the Governor’s Office, the Ohio Museums Association (OMA), the Association of Nature Centers Administrators (ANCA) and the National Audubon Society. These changes include limiting the number of people inside Farm Discovery Center to fifty (50), renovating bathrooms to be as touch-free as possible and daily deep cleaning of our facility and frequent cleaning of high-touch areas. Visitors are required to wear masks when inside the Farm Discovery Center with the exception of children 2 and under and those with medical issues. Single use masks will be available free for members. We have established one-way traffic patterns throughout our facilities. Hand sanitizer stations are available throughout the site.
The Marie S. Aull Education Center at 1000 Aullwood Road and its restrooms remain closed to all at this time. We are raising funds to renovate this building and bring its safety features and exhibits up to appropriate standards in order to reopen in 2021.
