There are many ways for youth with visual impairments to have meaningful experiences out in nature.  This includes being around animals, working with plants and flowers, or generally being outdoors.  As with other types of experiences, it is important to match the individual’s interest and skills with available opportunities.  There is always a way to create a job that fits an individual need!
