The outdoors is for everyone, and on this episode, we talk with Kaitlyn Verfuerth and Laurie Singer about outdoor recreation accessibility. Kaitlyn and Laurie are are leading advocates for people of all abilities, and through their work with Ability360, are making a noticeable impact within the community. Check out their program 360Outdoors program in action!
We wanted to share Ability360's work after speaking with their group on Arizona State Parks & Trails' Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP). This plan is created every five years, after collecting data from the SCORP survey to recommend funding priorities and actions to improve and maintain Arizona’s outdoor recreation opportunities. Basically, where should land managers spend money to make outdoor recreation better for everyone? SCORP involvement for our agency also means working with diverse partners like Ability 360 and other special interest groups throughout the state!
