Stop Building Trails For Us, Start Building Trails With Us
We offer consulting during the conception and planning stages, and trail testing during the construction phase. Having actual trail users with accessibility needs involved in the process is the best way to identify barriers, avoid costly mistakes, and ensure the trail is as accessible as possible within the scope of the project.
Accessible and Non-accessible Spaces:
There are a wide variety of factors that go into making an accessible green space. Unfortunately many spaces that have been designed to be accessible, still don't meet the needs of actual trail users as well as they could. Having an expert trail user involved in the process is the best way to make sure your organization is creating a truly accessible space.
Even when barriers do exist, a space can always become more accessible. We can consult on non-accessible trails and make suggestions on how they can become more inclusive.
Programming, Communication & Education
We can give guidance in the following areas: appropriate, non-offensive language usage; how to make programming more inclusive; and provide education about accessible trails, or general accessibility through speaking engagements, and webinars.
