PG&E Helps Build the Sensory Trail
On June 13, 2013, a fantastic group of 20+ people from PG&E’s finance department gave their time to volunteer for a day at Xenophon. Arriving with gloves and tools in hand, they set to work installing various sections of our new sensory trail. One group dug holes, mixed concrete and installed over 8 traffic signs. Another put their creative talents to work, cutting copper pipes to create a hanging chime and chain station. Still another used their building expertise to build a tree structure that will hold our birdhouses and singing birds. Shovels and dirt were flying, and drills and saws whirring. One group even helped to empty a compost bin. An incredible amount of work was accomplished by these helping hands. Our sensory trail is designed to offer our participants unique balance and sensory experiences outside of the arena in a natural setting. We are grateful to PG&E for the time they gave to help us install this trail.
