Now in its second century, Audubon is dedicated to protecting birds and other wildlife and the habitat that supports them. Audubon’s mission is engaging people in bird conservation on a hemispheric scale through science, policy, education and on-the-ground conservation action. By mobilizing and aligning its network of Chapters, Centers, State and Important Bird Area programs in the four major migratory flyways in the Americas, the organization will bring the full power of Audubon to bear on protecting common and threatened bird species and the critical habitat they need to survive. And as part of BirdLife International, Audubon will join people in over 100 in-country organizations all working to protect a network of Important Bird Areas around the world, leveraging the impact of actions they take at a local level. What defines Audubon’s unique value is a powerful grassroots network of nearly 500 local chapters, 23 state offices, 41 Audubon Centers, Important Bird Area Programs in 50 states, and 700 staff across the country. Audubon is a federal contractor and an Equal Opportunity Employer (EOE).
The Grange Audubon Insurance Center is a sanctuary for birds and nature lovers, set in parkland created from a formerly urban and industrial site in the heart of downtown Columbus, along the Scioto River. This LEED-Certified 18,000 sq. ft. building and surrounding two-acre property brings visitors from the community and beyond for onsite education programs, as well as for special public and private events.
To help execute special events and ensure the property is stewarded appropriately, Audubon is seeking a part-time attendant to assist the Operations Manager with facility-related duties. This individual will typically work between 10-30 hours month (depending on event scheduling and personal availability) and primarily supports the center during evenings and weekends.
