The Faerie Houses of Aullwood
The Faerie Houses of Aullwood have returned! Six new beautifully crafted faerie houses have appeared along the paved Birds, Flight, and Wrights Trail just outside Aullwood's newly reopened Marie S. Aull Education Center at 1000 Aullwood Road. Start your adventure in the nature center Gift Shop, pick up an entry form and see the cozy Faerie Library filled with good books! Then head outside, figure out the name of the tale associated with each faerie house along the path and bring all your answers back to the Nature Store and Gift Shop to receive a prize! Members of Aullwood and National Audubon Society are admitted to The Faerie Houses of Aullwood at no cost; nonmembers pay regular Aullwood general admission fees. Start your faerie house adventure any time 9 AM to 5 PM Tuesday through Saturday and 1 PM to 5 PM Sunday. (Aullwood's Nature Center, Farm Discovery Center, trails and property are closed on Mondays.) 

Aullwood Trail Adventures
We have eight miles of trails for you to explore. Pick up our trail map at the center or farm and get ready for adventure! All trails can be accessed from the Marie S. Aull Education Center, 1000 Aullwood Road or Aullwood Farm, 9101 Frederick Pike during regular business hours.

Aullwood Animal Adventures
The Marie S. Aull Education Center at 1000 Aullwood Road is home once again to our native animal exhibits. Go nose-to nose with a snapping turtle or black rat snake at the nature center, then visit Aullwood Farm to meet our delightful farm animals and their babies!
