Efforts to make Maine's outdoor recreation more accessible and welcoming to all
This is a rebroadcast of an earlier show (original air date Aug 16, 2022); no calls will be taken.
All over Maine, communities, land trusts, and parks are working to make their trails and outdoors programming more inclusive for people with disabilities. It's part of the growing national movement called "Outdoors for All." From building boardwalks to improving signs, we'll discuss what organizations can do to make their open spaces more accessible and welcoming.
