Access Nature's Summer Successes

By Shantala DuGay-Iyengar | Executive Director

While this summer has certainly been a hot one here in Lewisboro, New York, we were lucky enough to find some good days to run a few successful Access Nature programs. We organized a fun educational walk for adults with disabilities who attend Community Based Services' day habilitation program. Also, our local seniors enjoyed two programs--a relaxed and safe meadow meander in May and an educational visit to the Bedford Audubon in July. 

In addition, much of our work these past few month has been behind the scenes as we focused on our outreach to other nature-based organizations to support them in either starting or expanding their own programs for disabled and disadvantaged populations in their localities. We are thrilled to report that many other organizations are launching or expanding their programs to greater impact the wellness of underserved populations by breaking down barriers to provide increased opportunities to access nature.
