Green Technology for a Green Space

Egrets, like the one mirrored above, are just one of the species that can be seen at the Grange Insurance Audubon Center.  Perched on the Whittier Peninsula, the center is located within The Scioto Audubon Metro Park along the Scioto River, just south of downtown.

Outside, the Center features distinctive flora and fauna habitat areas, native plant demonstration gardens and a playground built from natural and recycled materials.

Inside, there’s a library with a view of the downtown skyline, a multipurpose room that seats 200, permanent and revolving exhibits and a nature store.

As a green facility, it was built with recycled construction materials, while its heating and cooling are fueled by alternative energy sources. The center hopes to increase environmental awareness through example and education.

An observation deck and terrace, complete with bird feeders, provide a panoramic view of the area’s reclaimed and restored 160 acres.

Once an industrial strip of land, the area is a major migratory bird flyaway, as well as home to lighter winged creatures like the dragonflies below.

When viewed from the air (note the red tower), this reclaimed green space may seem small and insignificant, but with the help of Grange Insurance, Audubon Ohio, Franklin County Metro Parks and the City of Columbus have preserved a key environmental pathway for future generations.

The Face of Art

Columbus: Inside Out Project – a community art event – was part of the worldwide art initiative, Inside Out.  As the brain child of artist/photographer JR, the recipient of the 2011 TED prize, the event called on participants to  express themselves through a global art project.

In the spirit of JR’s work – as a French street artist, he uses a camera to show the world its true face by pasting photos of faces on massive canvases – portraits of volunteers at TEDx Columbus, held at COSI, were digitally captured by seven Columbus-based photographers.  TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design) is a series of global conferences started by the Sapling Foundation to disseminate “ideas worth spreading.”

TEDx events were created to further TED‘s mission, by offering local communities the opportunity to share dialogue in a setting similar to the larger conferences.

Poster-sized portraits are displayed on community buildings in the Franklinton area and at COSI. Images at COSI will be in place for the next year.
