    Webinar Outline

    Washington Trails Association recently developed and deployed a wheelchair-friendly filter with the help of wheelchair hikers in their community. The presenter will review how they made it, what they learned (and are still learning), and how it serves this community of hikers.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Understand why you are developing a tool
    • Learn the process behind website development, using a specific example, from research to testing to deployment
    • Understand what audience your tool is serving and what their needs are


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

    Seattle, Washington

    Anna manages Washington Trails Association's online hiking guide, a database of nearly 4000 hikes in Washington state. With trails ranging from short, flat half-milers in town to remote routes hundreds of miles long, the hiking guide has something for hikers of all types. The information on is provided for free in support of WTA's mission to making hiking accessible to everyone. Her most recent project in pursuit of this goal is the addition of a wheelchair-friendly filter in the hiking guide, to help wheelchair hikers find hikes they can do.
