It's tough to describe exactly what an animal looks like to someone who can't see it.

But when visually impaired residents can touch an animal, they're able to draw a picture in their mind.

That's the goal if the Sensory Safari, going on this Wednesday, October 3rd at the Lincoln Children's Zoo.

Participants will be lead through a variety of stations one on one by volunteers.

There will be both live and mounted animals for them to touch.

Zoo CEO John Chapo says it's so difficult to describe to someone, using words, what an animal looks like.

With touch, a person can learn for themselves.

Zoo staff are asking you to register for the safari by calling or going online.

But if you don't get the chance, you can stop by.

The safari goes from 10:00 until noon and 1:00 until 3:00.
