Welcome to the Grange Insurance Audubon Center
Exploring the Nature of Change
Less than a 10-minute walk from downtown Columbus, on a half-forgotten bend in the Scioto River, lies a fragile green oasis, a tiny jewel, a hidden haven for wildlife and birds set amid an industrial landscape now in transformation. At the heart of this transformation will be the Grange Insurance Audubon Center, one of the first such centers in Audubon’s storied history to bring hands-on conservation and nature-based learning this close to the core of a major American city.
The Grange Insurance Audubon Center in the Scioto Audubon Metro Park is located in an Important Bird Area (IBA) where thousands of birds migrating from Central and South America use this spot along the Scioto River as a stopover during their long journeys.
The restoration of the Whittier Peninsula is happening through a unique partnership of City of Columbus Recreation & Parks Department, Metro Parks and Audubon Ohio.
With the arrival of cooler weather, we invite you to come and out enjoy the Center. Our hours (now - March 31, 2013) are Tuesday - Friday 10a - 5p, Saturday 10a - 3p and Sunday Noon - 5p. Bring the kids and enjoy the play room and library where you can watch and count the birds at the feeders. No kids, bring a book and enjoy a relaxing place to catch up on your reading. Hope to see you soon!
