About the Wildflower Center at Columbus State University

The Wildflower Center is a living laboratory that focuses on plant science, education and recreation. Over three acres of parkland in the heart of downtown Columbus hosts a variety of attractions that reflect the Center’s mission. Learn more at www.columbusstate.edu/wildflowercenter.

About the Center for Urban Ecology

The Center for Urban Ecology (CUE) is an interdisciplinary group of faculty, students, and staff interested in sustainable development and planning, urban environmental issues, and how cities form. CUE is a new research lab at CSU Columbus dedicated to addressing these issues and to supporting faculty, students, and community partners who are engaged in these research areas.

CUE’s work in its first year emphasizes the development of a sustainable transportation system in the Columbus, Ohio, region. The research, teaching, and service work of CUE provides a framework to connect with the many other CSU students, faculty, and staff who are committed to sustainability.

This event is made possible through a grant from the Ohio Environmental Council.

Learn more about the Wildflower Center at Columbus State. You’re invited to enjoy an hour of free guided tours in our beautiful native plant exhibit. You’ll learn about some of the most beautiful and unique plants that call Columbus home, as well as about the role they play in our region’s ecosystem. See more than 2,000 species of plants in a variety of habitats on our grounds, including a wetland, woods, prairie and open space.

During the tour, we’ll focus on native plants in our care. Each group will tour the exhibit twice, once in the spring, when the flowers and plants are just beginning to bloom and once in the fall, when they’ve reached their most stunning colors.

This guided tour is open to the public, but reservations are required for the spring tour (see below). We also suggest you stop by the Wildflower Center and/or purchase a map of the Wildflower Center and surrounding areas.
