New project helps visually impaired individuals through birdsong
Helping blind children and adults connect with nature: that's Donna Posont’s mission.
She's the director of a group called Opportunities Unlimited for the Blind and one of their projects is called Michigan Birdbrains. The project involves teaching blind individuals how to identify birdcalls, and then taking them out on nature walks to find the birds. Not only does this help participants gain confidence, but it also promotes environmental consciousness.
Donna Posont joined us today to discuss the project further.
Listen to the full interview above.
