Aullwood’s awesome, it’s real cool
It’s a place I go to see things that I don’t see in school.
Aullwood’s amazing, it’s number one.
Let’s go to Aullwood, we’ll learn and have some fun!
Crossed a log over the creek and headed for the pond.
Fed the fish, the bluegill fish, then we traveled on.
Out to the meadow where we saw a deer.
If you’re looking for nature exploration it’s all here!
Looked at lots of animals and listened to the birds.
Went on a nature walk and chirping is what we heard.
We got to hold a turtle, touch a snake and see some bees.
We walked through a forest that had lots of pretty trees.
Aullwood’s got the neatest nature forest that we’ve ever seen,
Full of wildflowers, woodpeckers, fungus, mushrooms, it’s really neat.
Let’s all go to Aullwood. We’ll learn and have some fun.
Mom and Dad take me to Aullwood and we’ll have lots of fun!

Education is at the heart of Aullwood’s mission. Aullwood Audubon
Center and Farm is an Audubon Center for environmental education and
organic agriculture. We provide activities that increase understanding
and preservation of the planet by children and adults through education,
research, and recreation.
Aullwood's dedicated Education Staff teaches programs about birds
and flight, reptiles and amphibians, to maple syrup making at the farm,
among many other diverse programs. We enjoy teaching about the
interconnectedness of all life, and understanding our important role in
the preservation and conservation of our planet. Please click
