New River Birding and Nature Festival

Does expert advice on optics, personal attention to your needs, and the opportunity to test drive binoculars and scopes before you plunk down your hard-earned money sound too good to be true? Well, it's not! You can experience all this at the Birding Optics & Gear Expo held in Columbus, Ohio. Eagle Optics and Bird Watchers Digest professionals understand the importance of getting the right optical tool and will be on hand with specialists from all the major sport optics companies at the Grange Insurance Audubon Center.

And what a perfect place to put binoculars and spotting scopes to the test! The Grange Insurance Audubon Center is just 1 mile south of downtown Columbus and is located inside the 120 acre Scioto Audubon which sets on the bank of the Scioto River on the Whittier peninsula. Providing vital educational opportunities to the area, the center features native plant demonstration gardens, a natural playground area, habitat areas with distinctive flora and fauna, and an outdoor observation deck and terrace with bird feeders. Other park activities include fishing, boating, hiking, and jogging.
