Back to the Land
Enrich your life by communing with nature at Aullwood Audubon Center & Farm. The 200-acre space includes a farm that’s home to rare breeds of livestock, including the Belted Galloway cow, Tunis Sheep and Silver Fox rabbits. Get to know the snakes, turtles and fish who call the Marie S. Aull Education Center home, and be sure to visit the outdoor Birdwatching Room, where you can observe them in their native habitat. Spend time in quiet reflection while strolling the walking trails that meander through the sanctuary amid woodlands, wetlands, ponds and sustainable farmland.
Step back in time 200 years at Carriage Hill MetroPark by watching a blacksmith work, conversing with period actors and greeting a friendly menagerie of farm animals. Hike, fish, camp or explore over 16,000 acres of diverse habitats in Five Rivers MetroParks varied parks. Be sure to stop by Five Rivers MetroParks’ outdoor 2nd Street Market to pick up locally grown produce and specialty foods.
