4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join Blue Hill Heritage Trust and Island Heritage Trust for another Friends from the Field Webinar!

Accessibility is an important but often overlooked part of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion work that is prominent in organizations and businesses around the world. Land Trusts often seek to be a resource to their community, so it is only natural that we think of accessibility to our trails and programs as an important part of our work.

Join BHHT’s Chrissy Allen and IHT”s Martha Bell to learn about the work that is happening at the national and state-wide level in this area, as well as right here in our region within both BHHT and IHT.

Chrissy Allen is Development Director for BHHT and also is on the Land Trust Alliance Advisory Council on Inclusive Health and Disabilities. She is co-author of “Open to All: A Disability Inclusion Guide for Land Trusts” and recently helped coordinate the state-wide “Outdoors for Everyone: Maine Accessibility Workshop” for land trusts in Maine.

Martha Bell, Environmental Educator for Island Heritage Trust. Martha works closely with Deer Isle – Stonington students and recently was involved in a building project to create a segment of wheelchair accessible boardwalk on the school property.
