As usual for a Saturday, the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo was packed today with kids and parents having fun petting animals and taking pictures. However, the day was a bit different than normal, as many of the children are visually impaired.
The Colorado School for the Deaf and Blind put on Sensory Safari along with the zoo.
It's a special zoo experience that focuses on touch, feel, and sound. It's also a way for families that are facing similar challenges to bond.
"Vision impairment and blindness is a low incident population," says Donna Keale, an outreach teacher with the Colorado School for the Deaf and Blind. "Sometimes you feel very isolated and you're the only person who has a child experiencing this, so it gives that time for families to connect."
This is the fourth year for the event.
