How to determine if a birding site is truly accessible.
A birding location opens a new boardwalk and describes it on their website as “accessible”… but when you arrive, you discover it really isn’t.
To help you submit Birdability Site Reviews to the Birdability Map, and to help you know where to hold accessible and inclusive bird outings, as well as learn a few things you may never have considered, join Birdability Coordinator and occupational therapist Freya McGregor to learn what can make a birding location truly accessible. We’ll hear from special guests explaining what they need, and get ideas on trail design and upgrades you can advocate for in your community.
The presentation will last less than an hour, but we have included 90 minutes for this event to ensure there is plenty of time for questions. Closed captions and an American Sign Language interpreter will be provided.
