Grange Insurance Audubon Center by Design Group
Grange Insurance Audubon Center • Scioto Audubon Metro Park • Franklin County Metro Parks • Columbus, Ohio • Design Group
Less than a 10-minute walk from downtown Columbus, the Grange Insurance Audubon Center sits within the 120-acre Scioto Audubon Metro Park. The Audubon Center is nestled within the park in a green oasis, a hidden haven for wildlife and birds, set amid an industrial landscape now in transformation. With Gold LEED Certification, the design of the center utilizes daylighting, recycled materials, extensive brownfield and wetlands remediation and energy recovery resulting in exceeding ASHRAE 90.1 2004 by 56%. The Grange Insurance Audubon Center is one of the first centers within Audubon’s storied history to bring hands-on conservation and nature-based learning this close to the core of a major American city.
