Event details

Experience the exhibits and trails of Four Rivers on your own terms! This independent program is for guests with sensory-processing needs, social anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder and those who would benefit from a small-group experience. The center will be open only to registered participants during this time. Buddy bags with sensory gadgets and a limited supply of noise-canceling headphones will be available for visitor use. Seven handheld audio units providing a narrative of the All-Persons Trail will be available for checkout at the front desk for guests who have visual impairments or who need cognitive supports.

Accommodations will be made where possible. Staff will be on hand to help visitors learn about our local habitat through the interactive exhibits, activities and/or crafts.
