    Description

    This paper will establish the need for an integrated management approach that addresses the needs of all customers. The discussion will high-light but not be limited to the needs of persons with disabilities in outdoor recreation activities. Barriers to participation and legal requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act and other laws will be discussed. The need for a range of activities and challenges for both programs and developed facilities will be established. "Universal design" is an ideal that enables all users to participate in recreation activities regardless of their ability level. The application of universal design to developed facilities and programs will be explained. The evolving USDA Forest Service Access Program will be used as a reference on how agencies may improve their situation.
