National Parks seeks SCI community's input for improving access at Nov. 4 event

Our friend and one of the biggest outdoor enthusiasts, Bonnie Lewkowicz, shared with us news of a Nov. 4th public forum on access of Bay Area National Parks hosted by the Golden Gate National Recreation Area with support from BORP & Wheelchair Traveling. The purpose of this forum is to seek important feedback from persons with disabilities, and in particular wheelchair users, on how to continue with the Parks Service’s efforts to make the parks more accessible.
