FALCONERS

FALCONERS is designed to allow children or adults of all ages with special needs and unique challenges (such as autism or developmental disabilities) and their whole family to have an enriching educational experience in a safe, welcoming and sensory friendly environment. There will be one sensory friendly event in Lansing, Michigan per month throughout 2021.

  • All monthly events are free
  • Inclusive for the entire family/support group
  • Each session includes hands-on stewardship activity
  • This program will be shared with other institutions in the community

Please note our FALCONERS events have been restructured because of the COVID-19 restrictions.

Note: Upcoming programs are listed AFTER the resources.
