Inclusive Spaces Audit Workshop

When:  Dec 4, 2023 from 09:00 to 16:00 (MT)

The Society of Outdoor Recreation Professionals and Outdoor Recreation Design Lab will be hosting the Inclusive Spaces Audit Workshop. The Workshop is designed for outdoor recreation providers to formalize, inform, and guide the process to expand welcoming and belonging for users who have traditionally been excluded or underrepresented in outdoor recreation.

The workshop is free to participants thanks to a grant from Colorado Parks and Wildlife. Participants are expected to use the resources shared during the workshop to conduct an audit at their home unit and provide feedback.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand key terms like accessible, inclusive, equity, and diversity and why they are important in trail design and maintenance
  • Learn how to do a trail or site assessment focused on accessibility and inclusion
  • Learn about strategies and actions you can use  to create more accessible and inclusive trails


  • Gerry Seavo James, Outdoor Recreation Design Lab/Explore Kentucky and Sierra Club Outdoors for All
  • Rachel Franchina, Society of Outdoor Recreation Professionals

Due to limited space, we are accepting applications through October 10, 2023. Applicants will be notified by October 17th if they are selected to participate in the workshop. Another workshop will be scheduled in western Colorado in the spring of 2024.
