Everyone's Nature

Colorado is a state known for its outdoor activities.  But what about those who have disabilities or mobility impairments?  The Colorado Department of Natural Resources believes everyone should be able to enjoy the outdoors.  So, they have helped produce a book entitled Everyone’s Nature, available from our library, which describes a process called “universal design” that can be used to make natural areas accessible to many who otherwise would not be able to enjoy Colorado’s amazing outdoors.  Universal design can be employed for nature trails, wildlife viewing, interpretive exhibits, and more.  If you’re looking for places with universal design features, visit the Colorado State Parks website.  The site’s sections on each park describe the different accessibility options for the park.  Also, the Colorado Division of Wildlife’s webpage has a section on fishing, hunting and wildlife viewing for persons with disabilities.
