The Fort River Birding and Nature Trail is a universally accessible trail. It was presented with the 2014 Paul Winske Access Award by the Stavros Center for Independent Living. A trail of this type provides uniform equal access to outdoor opportunities for all. This trail is able to occupy an “ADA niche” that elevates our visibility and desirability as a “specialty trail” and a destination within a large network of local nature trails that is capable of accommodating groups of visitors with a diversity of access needs.

This trail is intended to function as an outdoor visitor center to “connect people with nature.” Visitors will be immersed in a natural area to experience the sights, sounds, and smells on a trail that is easily accessible to visitors as well as educators.
