A2R Webinar Archive: Boating & Fishing
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.
This webinar session follows three project teams as they discuss solutions to designing for integration to fishing areas and creating water access.
This session was originally broadcast on July 30, 2009.
