The Faerie Houses of Aullwood Exhibit (Everyone)

Aullwood Audubon is happy to welcome the Faerie Houses of Aullwood. Come and explore the Cardinal Trail (paved trail) to discover these charming faerie houses. The theme this year is Earth Elements. The Faeries scampered through the woods to find materials with which to build their houses. When you find the houses along the paved trail, look for clues to guess which material each Faerie decided to use to win a prize. (Center)
