Outdoors For All

Enock Glidden

Date: April 27, 2023

Workshop: 10:45am-11:45am 

Abstract

Outdoors For All will be a presentation based on my work as an accessible outdoors consultant. I will talk about changing the mindset of I can’t to asking the question how can I. I will use examples from my life and work to show how I have used this question to accomplish many things. I will then relate that back to my work as an accessible trail consultant and how I am answering the question of how can I get more people outdoors.
