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

"Every year we look forward 
to participating in the Access Nature Program!
We have enjoyed learning about nature,
 and we have learned much from helping clear trails for families to use and enjoy. Working with the team from ACCESS NATURE, and sometimes with the John Jay High School students, is very rewarding to our group. After a hard day of working together, and learning more about our environment. ourparticipants always gain so much. We look forward to continue to be part of this program that Lewisboro Land Trust has to offer." Magda Piacentino, Day Program Director, Community Based Services, North Salem, NY
