Video Seminar: Access to Outdoor Recreation Environments
During the last 6 years, the U.S. Access Board has been working with
national stakeholders in recreation to develop accessibility guidelines
for outdoor recreation environments. Representatives of the National
Center on Accessibility and National Park Service have taken an active
role in the development of the proposed accessibility guidelines.
In September 2000, the National Center on Accessibility conducted
a satellite seminar addressing the proposed guidelines for trails,
campgrounds, picnic areas and beaches. The seminar is now available
as a self study package including a 2-part video, training packet
and web-based supplemental material. The 4-hour video program includes
presentation on the status of rulemaking and highlights of "best practices"
applications in outdoor recreation environments. Video presentations
include an opening address by Robert Stanton, Director of the National
Park Service; and featured sessions by Peggy Greenwell, U.S. Access
Board; David Park, National Park Service; Ruth Doyle, USDA Forest
Service; Peter Jensen, Open Space Management, Inc; Don Beers, California
State Parks; and Edward Hamilton, Easter Seals Virginia.
