Inclusive Spaces Audit Workshop - Spring '24

When:  Apr 2, 2024 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 for those who wish to participate. Please find the application here. Applications are due by February 13. Applicants will be notified February 23 if they are selected to attend.
