"Hi Bonnie. I just wanted to extend a big thank you for organizing yesterday’s trip to the Mianus Park for our clients. Everyone enjoyed the nature ... and the Q and A with Chris and Jennifer from Animal Embassy who helped to make this a fun, educational and informative day. We would be grateful if you could extend our appreciation to them. We look forward to our next walk! 
Thank you again from your friends at Pathways." Florence M. Griffin, 
Executive Director, Pathways, Inc. Pathways is located in Greenwhich Conn and provides a caring path to mental health.

“ It’s all true. Access Nature opens the hearts and minds of its guests as they become fully engaged in the experience of exploring nature”, Gigi Gutherie, LLT Outdoor Coordinator, May 2018

“I have supervised the Access Nature program collaboration between the intellectually challenged adults and the John Jay High School Senior Interns several times and have been very moved by the experience. The disabled adults find great inspiration and joy in working with the teenagers, who guide and help them in a work project; and the students learn so much about the power of compassion and the spirit of the disabled. Often, we have pizza after the project is done, and I find the students sitting with their ‘protégés’ rather than with their piers, which says to me, “Mission Accomplished’!”  Bobbe Stultz, Co-Director/LLT

THE SMILES SAY IT ALL

"The smiles on our Access Nature guests' faces, by the end of the program, says it all. When they arrive for their nature experience, there is understandably a little bit of anxiety. Soon after, however, they begin to explore their surroundings with the assistance of a naturalist. A transformation occurs: Their eyes begin to sparkle with excitement and confidence, and soon they are asking many thoughtful questions. Recent studies are heralding the benefits of connecting with nature. Access Nature's goal is to create opportunities for those who have disabilities, or are disadvantaged, so they too can enjoy these benefits. We purposely design our programs near where our guests reside in order for them to return independently of our program. Also, our programs are safe, customized for the needs of the group, educational, and fun!" Gigi Gutherie, Access 
Nature program coordinator, Lewisboro Land Trust
