Commod-ious new facility

We have this privy communication from the Department of Lands and Forestry:

Subject: Vault toilet at Park entrance 

"It’s ready to go and has been field tested by staff ensuring it works." 

This long-awaited throne is fit for a king and is compliant with modern accessibility standards.

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.
