As part of The Ridges Sanctuary’s continuous effort to be more accessible, visitors may notice something new this spring, the hearing loop system. In both the Cook-Albert Fuller Nature Center, and on the guided hikes, individuals with hearing aids will better able to hear the exhibits and guide using the loop systems as audio goes directly into the hearing aid. Executive Director Steve Leonard says making the outdoors more accessible is exciting.
The loop system comes just two years after the Hidden Brook Boardwalk was finished to allow guests in wheelchairs greater accessibility to the park. For a list of upcoming events at The Ridges Sanctuary visit their website.
