Anne has been working with visually impaired/blind citizens (VIPs) since 2019. In-person educational nature tours are multisensory – including sound, textures/touch, aromas and even taste. 

During the pandemic, BAO transitioned to virtual park tours using video.  It was observed that folks with different levels of eyesight can experience visual with videos Anne created (applying intense camera zoom-ins, detailed description of the screen to piece together a picture). Sounds and detailed verbal descriptions are important for VIPs who just see shadows.
