Webinar: Increasing Access and Participation in Outdoor Recreation
This webinar was presented by Kathleen Laurin, Ph.D. from the University of Montana Rural Institute on February 17, 2011.
Individuals who experience disability continue to be restricted in their opportunities to participate in outdoor recreation on public lands. This session described multiple efforts to increase access to outdoor recreational environments through information, education, agency partnerships, accessibility assessments, and access to assistive technology devices. It discussed a project specific to increasing participation in wildlife viewing, fishing, hunting, and related activities and identify numerous off- the-shelf and assistive technology devices to support participation.
