CAELi is committed to making its collections, buildings, programs, and services accessible for all visitors.

Wheelchairs and Mobility Devices

All buildings and most garden areas at CAELi are accessible to visitors who require a physical accommodation. Wheelchairs are available for loan on a first-come, first-served basis. Visitors who require a physical accommodation are also welcome to bring their own motorized scooters, wheelchairs, or Segways.

A color-coded map of the grounds is available online and in the Visitor’s Guide when you arrive, showing steep areas.

Service Animals

CAELi welcomes all visitors, including those assisted by a service animal. Visitors with a registered service animal are permitted in all publicly accessible areas. In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), CAELi recognizes only dogs and miniature horses as Service Animals. These animals are specifically trained to do work or perform tasks for a person with a disability. Guests who use service animals must retain control of their animal at all times, and are required to keep them on a leash or harness while visiting. Emotional support animals are not recognized as service animals under the ADA; we apologize for the inconvenience, but CAELi is unable to accommodate them.
