Connecting with nature is a path to healing and positive growth for many people.  Creating the infrastructure to help make natural spaces accessible to people of all abilities is an ambitious and worthy effort we can all support.  In recognition of this kind of work, the “New Hampshire Governor’s Commission on Disability recently honored The Nature Conservancy in New Hampshire for the creation of an accessible trail at the Ossipee Pine Barrens Preserve.”

The individuals and organizations chosen to receive the Governor’s Accessibility Award are recognized for their initiatives that embody the mission of the Americans with Disabilities Act.  Awards like these are a great way for public officials to highlight the important work of private and non-profit organizations in helping create accessible communities.
