Join us for a Braille / Sensory Nature Walk for Kids!
Hug a Huge Tree - Listen to Chirping Birds - Touch Soft Moss
Come enjoy a beautiful morning outdoors on a Braille trail specially designed for sensory experiences.
Please join us on Saturday, April 18th at 10:00 a.m. for a special nature walk for kids with visual impairment or other disabilities on the Whispering Woods Braille Trail. The walk is free, and families are welcome.
Located at the Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center, this Braille nature trail is located along a circular unpaved path through the woods, with a guide rope all the way around, and 18 sign stations at intervals along the way in English print and Braille. The signs give information about the different types of trees along the path, including facts about their bark, leaves, flowers, other natural features, and usage by native Americans, as well as encouraging sensory experiences such as feeling tree roots and bark, comparing the shapes of leaves, listening to the sounds of the forest, and more. We will have student volunteers available to guide kids along the trail, and everyone can go at their own pace.
The walk will be held at the Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center, 2020 Clean Water Drive, Buford, GA 30519. Transportation is available if needed. Refreshments and snacks will be served. Walk begins at 10:00 a.m.
Please R.S.V.P. to Evan Barnard at firstname.lastname@example.org.
