Started as a Leadership Shawano County project in 2021, our purpose is to create a path where those with sensory processing issues feel safe exploring their senses without feeling overwhelmed by them. This gentle stimulation of the senses occurs courtesy of plants and features that engage one’s senses of sight, smell, touch, taste, and sound. Although this path is designed with those with Alzheimer's and other dementias in mind, children and adults of other abilities will also benefit. This sensory path is a fun, educational tool that allows everyone who enters it to explore and learn about their senses and nature.
We are a group comprised of community members with varying personal and professional backgrounds coming together to create a more inclusive Shawano! This project is strictly volunteer.

Every piece of this path is supported by our donors. From the bricks in the pathway, to the plants, and the musical instruments. We could not continue to improve this pathway without you! All donations are tax deductible.
