In the world of the outdoors, there should be no boundaries.  For an individual who uses a wheelchair, some problems do exist. As both avid outdoorsmen, and Physical Therapist Students, we would like to provide information that will help wheelchair users enjoy the outdoors. We also will educate the general public on ways to improve accessibility for those who desire to participate in boating activities.

We will give examples of boat landings that are wheelchair accessible, as well as some examples of inaccessible docks.  For the dock owner, we will give tips that are following the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) guidelines for constructing accessible boat landings.

Links to National, State, and private organizations that provide information and assistance to individuals with disabilities are also included.  Additional Links to companies that  make equipment that will aid in accessibility can also be found.

We hope that you will use the information from our website to assist in improving accessibility of the great outdoors to all people.

Thank You!!
