U.S. Access Board Webinar: Accessible Trails (November 5)

The next webinar in the U.S. Access Board's free monthly series will take place November 5 from 2:30 – 4:00 (ET) and will cover access to trails. This session will review requirements for trails that the Board issued in 2013 as part of a supplementary rule on outdoor areas developed by the federal government. These provisions, while applicable to national parks and other federal lands covered by the Architectural Barriers Act, can be used as a resource in addressing access to trails on other types of sites. Representatives from the Board and the National Park Service will conduct the session.

For more information, including registration instructions, visit www.accessibilityonline.org. Webinar attendees can earn continuing education credits (CEUs). Questions can be submitted in advance of the session (total limited to 25) or can be posed during the webinar.

Archived copies of previous Board webinars are available on the site. The webinar series is made available in cooperation with the ADA National Network.
