Help Audubon document accessibility in outdoor spaces.

Lack of accessibility information should not be a barrier to those who want to get outside. But information on how accessible parks, hiking trails, and birding locations are frequently incomplete or non-existent, making it difficult for people who experience accessibility challenges to find places to bird.

But together we can change that. You can help us chronicle the accessibility features of outdoor spaces.

You can find us on their website and take a survey about accessibility.
