Where People Connect to Nature

Dear Audubon Community, Volunteers, Partners and Supporters:


The Grange Insurance Audubon Center is driven by the deep support of local communities that often gather socially to steward, monitor, learn from each other, and enjoy birds and nature. As we take on the personal responsibility to slow the spread of COVID-19, we must also take care of each other to keep our communities healthy and continue to care for birds and the places they need.

In order to protect the health and well-being of our staff, volunteers and visitors and to help stop the spread of COVID-19, we are closing all of our indoor areas of our center until at least June 30. We will continue to monitor the situation with direction from the Governors Office and the Ohio Department of Health.

At this time, it is important to draw from our strong local communities of support. We are working on developing safe alternatives to our regular stewardship activities and engagement events. Birding, stewardship, and engagement in natural areas continue to be great activities that incorporate social distancing, but we want to make sure we are doing them in the safest way possible.

In Central Ohio,  Audubon has discontinued our events through the end of April. We will closely monitor recommendations of the Center for Disease ControlOhio Department of Health and other public health agencies. Many of our events are in partnership with other conservation and community organizations. As such, continued partner events will depend on agency policy regarding COVID-19. We will continue to work closely with those partners as well as our volunteers to evaluate the safety of stewardship and engagement events through Spring 2020.

Our team will provide updates on Audubon-led events through email social media and the Grange Insurance Audubon Center website. For current and up-to-date information regarding COVID-19 policies, we have provided resources below should you have any additional questions or concerns. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation, and look forward to working with you again soon to protect and restore the natural areas we know and love.

Thanks for all you do for birds and the people of Ohio,

The Grange Insurance Audubon Center Team

P.S. Birds bring us happiness in so many ways—especially in trying times. Enjoy this care Bird Care Package, from Audubon to you.

Celebrating 10 Years of Conservation

Grange Insurance Audubon Center strives to light a spark of passion in the hearts of our community for the natural world. This is an obligation we joyfully carry out through youth and adult education opportunities, on-the-ground conservation and demonstration of native habitat for the benefit of birds and all life. We celebrate this work and our decade long partnerships with Columbus Recreation and Parks Department, Franklin County Metro Parks and National Audubon Society that help to create and maintain this urban natural haven.

Over the past ten years we have welcomed more than 40,000 youth participants to our hands-on conservation programming, fostered 25,000 volunteer hours and inspired more than half a million community members. Our conservation and restoration efforts have restored 100 acres or habitat, by removing over 9,000 invasive plants and replacing 5,000 native plants. We look forward to what the next 10 years of conservation education and nature adventure will do for our community.
