Outdoors for All
July 27 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
As a person with a disability, Enock has been working with Maine Trail Finder to further the progress in the accessibility of outdoor spaces. His main focus has been on the accessibility of trails. During this webinar, he is planning to speak about their philosophies toward furthering that goal. Through his personal experience hiking the trails of Maine and using trail ratings and descriptions to choose their hikes, the presenter has gained various philosophers about what outdoor accessibility really means. He believes there are different levels of accessibility just like there are different levels of difficulty. He believes everyone deserves a choice as to what adventure means to them. He will delve into his ideas for giving access to people of all abilities through various types of barrier removal to additions that can be made to signage, trails, and other features of outdoor spaces. If we all work together, we can open up everyone’s world.
