Columbus Audubon’s Calamus Swamp will be closed to visitors until further notice. Damage to the boardwalk was sustained in the ash tree trimming process. The preserve will be closed until the boardwalk can be replaced.
Calamus Swamp, located 1.5 miles west of Circleville, Ohio, is a beautiful, diverse and rare wetland that was dedicated as a Columbus Audubon Preserve on June 3, 2000. Calamus’ 19 acres offer a unique glimpse into the glacial past that shaped Ohio’s landscape. It is home to several distinct plant communities and numerous breeding birds, and is an appealing resting spot for birds migrating through the Scioto River corridor.
