Audio Journal Will Blaze A Trail To Say Thanks To Its Volunteers
Audio Journal volunteers will be visiting the trails of Broad Meadow Brook Conservation Center and Wildlife Sanctuary on Saturday, June 29th, enjoying food, drinks and recognition at their annual Volunteer Appreciation event. We will thanking our volunteers for their many hours of broadcasting newspapers, magazines and other printed materials to residents of Worcester County who are blind or vision-impaired.
Volunteers will enjoy full use of the sanctuary, including the new Sensory Trail built to enable accessibility for patrons with disabilities. An audio description for the trail can be downloaded to a phone or media player for people who are blind or vision-impaired. Along with the sensory trail, the sanctuary also reaches out to patrons with vision-impaired through its “Blind Bird” program, where visitors can learn to recognize a wide range of common birds through their songs and calls.
Listeners are also invited to join us and take full advantage of Broad Meadow Brook’s accessibility. For more information contact Audio Journal by calling 508-797-1117 or e-mailing valerie [at] audiojournal [dot] net (subject: Volunteer%20Appreciation%202013) .
