Schools for the Blind

Schools for the Blind



Access to the outdoors is important to the education and health of all individuals regardless of age, location or physical capabilities. Equal access to education for people with visual impairments or other physical disabilities is essential. All students should be able to explore nature to gain a better understanding of the world around them, enhance their education, and participate in physical activities. Students with disabilities need these opportunities to lead happier, healthier, and more productive lives.
