This Week’s Program:
This program will be a sensory scavenger hunt hike through Whitten Woods in Ashland, NH for adults with disabilities. We will hike at a slow pace in order to soak in all of the beauty around us. We want to encourage participants to get back into nature and use their senses to interact with what’s around them. We will have fun scavenger hunt cards for participants and aides to check off as we go. Lakes Region Conservation Corps members Maggy and Nick will help out plenty with finding everything on the card. Since this program will be accessible to various abilities, we will have a mixed bag of items on the card that involve different senses, so that everyone can have the chance to find at least a couple of items on their own, regardless of which of their senses may be impaired.
This program is specifically aimed to reach adults with disabilities able to navigate a trail in snowy/icy conditions. Service animals are always welcome, however please be sure they are fitted with an orange blaze of some sort, whether it is a bandana, collar, vest, or colored tape on the harness.
