Access Nature Quarterly Meeting – Get To Know Your Parks

October 11, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Pinelands Preservation Alliance presents the Access Nature Forum.

Get to know your parks! Join us for a conversation with Matthew Johnson who is the Coordinator for Open Space Acquisition & Park Development with Burlington County Parks. He will discuss his role, current projects and initiatives, and ADA-Accessible trails and amenities within the county park system. He will cover opportunities for networking, information on funding opportunities and resources, and how to get involved as well as how the public can support ongoing projects. We will discuss our goals to make the outdoors more inclusive and accessible for individuals with special needs. At the end of his discussion, there will be time to ask questions.

Register for the October 11th virtual talk HERE.

The Access Nature Forum was developed to provide a means for those with disabilities to unite and have a voice and be heard.

The Access Nature Forum was created to bring together a diverse selection of like-minded individuals to have conversations about improving access to natural places. We aim to engage those with disabilities, their families, caregivers, veterans’ groups, assisted living organizations, advocacy groups, nonprofit organizations, state, and local officials, and agencies in a public discourse that identifies public interest, concerns, and ideas, and join their voices for improving access to natural places.

Our goal is to bring about change for the betterment of our collective community. This is an opportunity for a section of our community to express what they need, want, and hope for, to make their lives and outdoor recreation more enjoyable through accessibility to the outdoors and the ability to gain a positive mental and physical health experience.

We will hold quarterly conversations via Zoom with the potential to add more meeting dates as our plan develops. If you are interested in participating in any forum discussion, please fill out the sign-up form below.

This is a work in progress, and we value your input on how we are developing, whether you would change or add to the information we provide, and how you think we can make this forum and website more useful. You can email Sean Kane Holland at sean@pinelandsalliance.com or fill in our survey form.
