Aullwood Audubon Center and Farm

Celebrate your child’s special day with a B’Earthday party, by learning about our earth and some of its animals. Parties last two hours and can take place at the Nature Center or Farm.

For a party at Aullwood Nature Center, your child will select a special guest to visit, a turtle or snake. Activities include learning about the animal, touching it, and maybe even feeding it! After meeting the special guest, the party will head outside for an exploration of Aullwood’s trails for 15-20 minutes or explore the many displays in the Center. Parties at Aullwood Farm get children involved in chores! Guests will have the opportunity to collect eggs or maybe feed some animals. Then they will take a farm hike to meet the many animals that live at the farm.

After the guided activities, which last 60-75 minutes, groups will have the rest of the party time to celebrate! In a private room, you can serve refreshments, play games, and open presents.
