Nature isn't closed!

Enjoy your visit virtually or in pre-registered outdoor programming!

Center Update Effective 1/25/2021

Due to the continued high numbers of Covid-19 cases in Franklin County, Ohio the Grange Insurance Audubon Center will continue to remain closed to indoor visitation and indoor programming opportunities through February 9th, 2021. Our anticipated reopening date for indoor visitation and programming will be February 9th, 2021. We will update the reopening date here if needed.

Please continue to check our the Grange Insurance Audubon Center Eventbrite page for pre-registered programming opportunities that will be available starting February 9th, including Winter Lantern Hikes (also available February 6th) , Beginner Bird Walks (also available 1/30 and 2/6), Turtle Tuesday, Winter Wednesdays, Preschool Story Time and our Adventure Backpacks available Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays beginning again Febr uary 9th.  Visit our website and social media for activity and opportunity announcements. Click here to register!    

In an effort to keep our visitors, volunteers and staff healthy and safe, we feel this continued indoor closure is necessary at this time. We look forward to engaging you virtually and in pre-registered outdoor and indoor programs during this time. Be well and keep your spirits high (and don't forget to get some fresh air while enjoying some time out in nature)!

Please follow these general guidelines when visiting the center for pre-registered outdoor or indoor programming. Thank you, in advance, for your understanding and cooperation:

  • Please postpone your visit if you are sick or believe you may have been exposed to the Covid-19 virus.
  • Masks are required in our pre-registered, outdoor programming and throughout the surrounding Scioto-Audubon Metro Park except for visitors age 10 and under or with medical exemptions.
  • Please observe social distancing whenever possible.
  • Please bring with you a filled water bottle and dress for the weather.

There is no better time than now to enjoy birds and nature!  We look forward to engaging you in exciting, pre-registered,  activities and programming (or virtually)! Happy New Year! For more detailed information, please call the Grange Insurance Audubon Center at 614-545-5482.
