Description
American Trails will present this Webinar on April 5, 2018. Presented by Bill Botten with the U.S. Access Board. This webinar will review the scoping and technical requirements for outdoor developed areas on federal lands and highlight the best practices for facilities covered by the ADA.

In the fall of 2013, the U.S. Access Board issued final guidelines for outdoor developed areas on federal lands covered by the Architectural Barriers Act. The final guidelines are now the enforceable standard. The standard covers pedestrian trails, picnic and camping facilities, viewing areas, and beach access routes. This webinar will review the scoping and technical requirements for these unique facilities and highlight the best practices for facilities covered by the ADA.

This webinar qualifies as a Health, Safety, and Welfare (HSW) course (via LA CES).
