I would like to introduce myself at the Director of Outdoor Access. We are happy to collaborate with you for our first hike of the 2016 season. To share a bit, we are sponsored by DCR Universal Access Program to run year-round winter sports, kayaking and hiking programs for folks with disabilities. Together, we make it happen... with adaptive equipment and team-work, we create boundless opportunities!!
"The plan for Tuesday'-- Meeting at the Y at 9 am and Wendell Forest at 9:30 and go for our Ruggles Pond hike (beautiful right now!) and Brenda Kennedy of Outdoor Access will be there at 11:30 with Nate Johnson and we can have lunch and get to see their program out a a comfortable pavilion.
Please bring some extra snackies .
Happy Memorial day ! - Bobby Curley"
The Outdoor Access team will be supporting Nate, (whom some of you may know) in using our new Freedom Chair (off-road wheelchair) http://www.gogrit.us/ to access the pavilion. Then we'll transfer to a Terratrek wheelchairhttp://www.motionconcepts.com/terratrek.html
to travel clock-wise around the pond, to the beaver den overlook.
Tuesday Trekkers and Bobby are welcome to assist the Nate's team or hike completely around the pond.
