WALNUT CREEK, CA (May 3, 2022) — A group of curious blind and visually impaired seniors from the Lions Center for the Visually Impaired (LCVI) visited the Lindsay Wildlife Experience in Walnut Creek on April 14 and reportedly enjoyed every minute of it.
Five Concord and Clayton residents were among the 14 LCVI clients (accompanied by caregivers, volunteer escorts and LCVI staff) who enjoyed live nature presentations on porcupines, reptiles, insects, and “creatures of the night” while they also explored the museum exhibits and shopped at its gift shop.
Irene, of Concord commented, “I was pleasantly surprised to have such a great time at Lindsay Wildlife Experience.”
Event coordinator Richard Grange, explained that LCVI hosts these excursions into the community to help our clients engage actively, socializing in fun, interesting, and enriching activities with their peers, and added that in that regard he felt this visit was a great success.
LCVI provides free supportive services for blind and visually impaired seniors in Contra Costa, Alameda and Solano Counties. For more information call 925-432-3013 or visit www.LCVI.org.
