Location of Meeting:
The Grange Insurance Audubon Center is in the Scioto Audubon Metro Park, which 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 Audubon Center also serves as a model for sustainable design thereby promoting the economic, health and aesthetic benefits of green building.
Students and visitors alike can learn first-hand the benefits of “going green.” The Center is a green facility of 18,000 net useable square feet built with recycled construction materials. Heating and cooling are provided by alternative energy sources.
The center is a community gathering place for those who live and work downtown, as well as everyone in the Central Ohio area.
