Fostering a lifelong fascination with nature through outdoor field trips
Access to the beach for ALL! Wheelchair users are welcome to use a Freedom Trax and enjoy the Arroyo Burro Beach (Hendry's) compliments of NatureTrack - January 9th
On Sunday, January 9, from 10 AM to Noon, NatureTrack will have six Freedom Trax available for wheelchair users to use on a first-come, first-served basis. Freedom Trax is a device that quickly and easily converts a manual wheelchair into a battery-powered, all-terrain vehicle allowing wheelchair users to traverse beach sand and trails independently!
There is no cost to use the Freedom Trax. NatureTrack will also have two manual wheelchairs available for transfer should your wheelchair not fit on the Freedom Trax.
Explore Ecology will be hosting their monthly beach cleanup at the same time! Now, you too can help keep our beaches beautiful!January
Creating New Tracks
Enabling Wheelchair Users and Others with Physical Disabilities to Experience Nature
NatureTrack is expanding its “Fostering a Lifelong Fascination with Nature” outdoor field trip program to include wheelchair users of all ages. Using Freedom Trax, a manual wheelchair can be quickly transformed into a battery-powered all-terrain vehicle that easily traverses beach sand and trails. Nature Track helps wheelchair users or those with a physical disability access and explore beaches and trails from San Luis Obispo to Ventura. Wheelchair users can independently enjoy nature alongside family and friends.
