Officials from the Grange Insurance Audubon Center celebrated the groundbreaking for a new facility Tuesday with an Earth Day tree planting.

The 18,000-square foot center, located at Scioto Audubon Metro Park on the Whittier Peninsula, is expected to be completed late spring 2009.

The facility will include a multi-purpose room, library, bird viewing area, nature store, volunteer space, and be within a five-mile radius of 112 schools. Other attractions the center will feature are gardens, a nature playground and an outdoor amphitheatre. Amenities on the about 80 acre Metro Park will include hiking trails, a bike trail, ponds, wetlands, a boardwalk, a riverside boat ramp, and public picnic and fishing areas.
