NATURAL TREASURES IN OHIO
Grange Insurance Audubon Center
Why It's a Natural Treasure
Situated only a mile from downtown Columbus, the Grange Insurance Audubon Center gave new life to the industrial strip of land along the Scioto River. The center is located in an Important Bird Area, meaning that the area is internationally recognized as vital to birds and other biodiversity. Thousands of birds migrating from Central and South America stop in the area during their long journey, and over 200 bird species have been recorded.
The Scioto River is a major tributary to the Ohio River, which has been identified by The Nature Conservancy as globally important for both people and nature. The Conservancy is working throughout the Ohio River basin to protect key natural attributes that will help preserve the ecosystem over the longterm.
What to See and Do
In addition to migratory birds, humans flock to the center, which offers a multitude of amenities including indoor and outdoor kids’ play areas, river and marshland observation decks, a rock-climbing wall, Scioto Greenway trail, a dog park and more. What will you explore?
