It’s back!!!!! The Native Plant Backyard Challenge is open for 2024!!!! Sign up now!!!


Looking for a new project that the whole family can enjoy?  Columbus Audubon has teamed up with the Grange Insurance Audubon Center (GIAC) to create a Native Plants Backyard Challenge.

Once again, we’re looking for households in Central Ohio who would like to transform or further develop their backyards into native habitats.

Learn simple, cost-effective steps to create your very own native wildlife habitat — and participate in a Community Science Project. Support the role of native plant habitats in increasing and preserving biodiversity.

The Native Plant Backyard Challenge provides tool kits to help you fill your back (or front!) yard with native plants. You also will receive lists of native plant care instructions and blooming schedules, a participation sign, and so much more. For details or to sign up for the challenge, head on over to the Columbus Audubon / Grange Insurance Audubon Center Native Plans Challenge website!
