Due to the weather forecast, our April 1st Sensory Celebration was rescheduled to May 12th.
In recognition of Autism Acceptance Month, this event invites you to explore the Van Vleck gardens using your senses as your guide. Activity stations throughout the gardens are self-paced and optional, and focus on using our senses to discover nature through art, movement, literature and exploration walks. Meet and greet animals from Eyes of the Wild, an exotic animal rescue, and learn about the incredible senses these animals have to help them survive. This outdoor family program is an inclusive event, open to people of all ages and abilities and will be held entirely outdoors.
