The National Park Service Office of Public Health and the National Environmental Education Foundation are hosting a Power of Parks for Health Roundtable, Thursday, July 22 from 6:30-8:00 pm EDT. Our panel will discuss present and historical barriers to outdoor access and examine an accessibility project from Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore in Michigan’s Lower Peninsula, to highlight strategies and opportunities to improve access to all types of parks and public lands for the Disability community.
During this event, we will:
• Discuss the Power of Parks for Health through the lens of stories and experiences of those in the Disability community.
• Examine an accessibility project from Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore from start to finish.
• Outline how individuals, communities, affinity groups, and park staff can make important accessibility projects a reality in their parks and green spaces.
