Aullwood Trail Adventures
We have added almost two miles of new trails for you to explore. Pick up our updated trail map at the farm or visit https://aullwood.audubon.org/trailmap and get ready for adventure! All nature sanctuary trails are accessed from the farm.

Animal Silhouettes
Enjoy a self-guided family activity called “Animal Silhouettes”! Find the 14 animal silhouettes stationed around Aullwood’s farmyard. Pick up a game paper from the front desk to read through the clues will help you guess the animal silhouette. Have fun learning a special fact about each one, then see if you can make a shadow on the ground like the animal silhouette!

Aullwood Animal Adventures
The Farm Discovery Center is filled with our native animal exhibits from the Marie S. Aull Education Center. Go nose-to nose (through the glass) with a snapping turtle or black rat snake! Visit all the barns and meet our delightful farm animals.

== Important Information and Guidelines for Walks and Programs ==
Aullwood is following the recommendations from government officials, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Ohio Department of Health and the National Audubon Society. In order to keep everyone as safe as possible there are new guidelines and procedures for Aullwood programs. Guidelines are subject to change as state mandates change. The safety of our members, volunteers and staff is our top priority.
