The project spans a three year period over which sensory trails are opening across the state. Broadmoor Sanctuary in Natick and Stony Brook Sanctuary in Norfolk already have accessible interpretive sensory trails in place. Trails at Attleboro Springs and Arcadia Wildlife Sanctuary have been recently completed. More will open next year, so this is a great time to get out and explore new trails, especially for those who have visual impairments!

Coming up October 15, Arcadia's new sensory trail be officially opened and celebrated at 127 Combs Road in Easthampton. This new addition to the Arcadia trail system will include 12 interpretive stops that can be listened to via cell phone, or read in text or Braille. Bordered by forest, the trail meanders through field and pond habitats, offering a selection of edge habitats. The free event officially starts at 11am with a ribbon cutting and refreshments at 11:30, followed by informal guided walks highlighting multi-sensory learning stations until 2:00 p.m.
