The City of Goshen collaborates with ADEC, Inc. to propose Sensory Trail
ELKHART COUNTY, Ind. – The City of Goshen is collaborating with ADEC, Inc. to propose a sensory trail to help connect individuals with disabilities to the health benefits and wonder of nature.
ADEC, Inc. is an organization that advocates for and serves people with developmental and intellectual disabilities in Elkhart and St. Joseph Counties.
There will be a series of experiences along a route designed for users to engage with their different senses.
The City of Goshen is proposing developing a GPS-enabled app accessed by a phone or tablet while on the trail to connect users to nature in a fully immersible sensory trail experience; unique natural features will be located and identified, interactive spaces will be pinpointed and the trail will provide opportunities for users to listen to music, poetry, or historical information.
Stationary live nature cameras will be placed to provide individuals who cannot participate on the trail with accessibility to the same mental health benefits of the sighs and sounds of nature from their home.
