A2R Webinar Archive: Interpretive Trails
The W.K. Kellogg Foundation Access to Recreation grant program provided $15 million in funding to 36 recreation projects in four Midwestern states from 2006 to 2009. Projects were selected based on their concepts for embracing universal design, opportunity to facilitate inclusion of people of all abilities and opportunity to serve as an exemplar of universal design to community planners, recreation practitioners and advocates. Over the summer of 2009, the National Center on Accessibility hosted three free 90-minute sessions. The webinars presented an overview of the project concepts, the planning process, design decisions, construction issues, and fundraising. This was an excellent opportunity for professionals seeking the latest information on universal design trends specific to parks and recreation. The series was sponsored by the Michigan Recreation and Park Association Foundation.
During this session the project teams will discuss plans to makeover one existing park and build another while creating a multi-sensory trail experience and using technology for visitor orientation.
This session was originally broadcast on August 27, 2009.
