Mar 29 2023


Time:  10-11am AKT  /  11am-12pm PT  /  12-1pm MT  /  1-2pm CT  /  2-3pm ET

Is your nature center accessible? Access to nature is important for everyone, abled and disabled. In this session we’ll discuss the differences in abilities that we should be aware of, and what changes we can make to better accommodate disabled community members. Join us for a Facilitated Discussion with your fellow peers.

Registration: $10 members, $15 non-members


Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Discussion Group
This group is a space for ANCA members and non-members to come together to discuss relevant DEI resources, deepen our DEI learning, find support and inspiration from each other, and make plans for action. The group will gather to discuss a particular theme with opportunities to explore your own topics. The idea is that whatever format works best for you, you’ll have a way to engage!
