  NCA 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.
