Students will utilize tactile materials such as seeds, tree rounds, dried herbs, or pinecones for a sensory-friendly experience with nature. Educators can choose the program focus based upon the needs of their students. Programs that explore plants, trees, or career options are available.

This introductory program is intended for groups in need of a slower pace or extra accommodations. Longwood educators will adapt activities based on student abilities.
