This 90-minute webinar will include a basic introductory overview of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) nondiscrimination requirements for outdoor recreational providers and operators including tips, tools, and resources for best practices. 
Participants will also gain a greater understanding of the disability market including the many ways people recreate today. 
Presenters will share and use real-life operational examples and experiences to illustrate some successful and some not-so-successful instances.  With this information comes confidence in fostering an ongoing inclusive business model to create not only ADA compliance; but a clear advantage over your competition.  Most people desire outdoor recreation for a variety of reasons.  Does your program or business model welcome and strive to make “the Great Outdoors” accessible to ALL customers?  How can I be better prepared to welcome and make “the Great Outdoors” accessible to patrons with disabilities?  Who and where can I go when I have questions?  This session will begin to provide some answers to these questions.  

Learning Objectives
  1. Gain a greater awareness and understanding of the general disability population and market.
  2. Learn the basic nondiscrimination requirements, obligations, and compliance issues under the ADA.
  3. Explore real-life experiences and examples of inclusive policies and procedures providers and operators have successfully implemented.
  4. Acquire disability and ADA-related resources, tools, and tips for further technical assistance and staff training.
