Disability and Access in the Outdoors with Author Syren Nagakyrie

5:00 PM – 6:30 PM

Description

Syren Nagakyrie discusses their book, The Disabled Hiker's Guide to Western Washington and Oregonand their work to create a more accessible and inclusive outdoors. 

What does accessibility actually mean? What outdoor recreation opportunities are available for people with disabilities? How do we shift decades of misperception about disability and the outdoors? Get answers to these questions and more during this presentation and Q&A session.

Syren Nagakyrie is the founder of Disabled Hikers. Syren grew up with multiple disabilities and encounters numerous barriers to outdoor recreation, but has found a sense of connection and belonging in nature even though society has told them otherwise. As a long-time disabled activist and community builder, Syren is committed to an outdoors culture transformed by representation, accessibility, and justice for Disabled and all other marginalized outdoors people. They work with parks, organizations, brands, and government agencies to improve access and belonging of the disability community.
