Set amid a once industrial landscape, Scioto Audubon has been transformed from a blighted brownfield into a green oasis where wildlife and birds thrive and flourish. The 120-acre park is a recreational and educational destination for visitors of all ages. Located along the banks of the Scioto River just south of downtown Columbus, the park resulted from a partnership between Columbus, Ohio Audubon and Columbus Metro Parks to bring nature to the Capital City.
A group of college students will be removing invasive species from the park, as well as any additional tasks the park may need completed. Anyone who would like to participate is welcome. We will be meeting from 12:00 to 4:00 pm on April 8th, at the parking lot near the outdoor climbing wall. Invasive species removal involves a moderate level of work; please wear appropriate clothing to work outside.
Invasive species are generally non-native, and can do harm to the native ecosystem. Removing these species will ensure that the Scioto Audubon will remain the green oasis it is, attracting wildlife and birds for the enjoyment of central Ohioans.
