Hello WebAIM Community,

Are you or someone you know an outdoor enthusiast living with a disability?
We'd love to hear about how you or they plan your outdoor recreation
activities and what kind of information would be most helpful to you. 10x
<https://10x.gsa.gov/>, a venture studio within the federal government, is
conducting research to understand the challenges people living with a
disability face when planning outdoor activities at local, state, or
national parks and public recreational lands due to a lack of comprehensive
accessibility information.There’s a shortage of dependable, person-centered
resources for people with diverse disabilities seeking to discover and
organize outdoor recreation activities. We're seeking ways to improve
accessibility at national parks and federally-managed lands for millions of
Americans with a wide range of abilities and challenges, including mobility
limitations, autism spectrum conditions, hearing impairments, visual
impairments, and more. Our goal is to help create more meaningful
accessibility content that allows people living with a disability to find
recreational activities tailored to their specific accessibility needs
without compromising their privacy.Our research involves one-on-one Zoom
sessions lasting 45 minutes, where we aim to gain insights into your
firsthand experiences, challenges, preferences, and needs when accessing
outdoor spaces. Your input will directly inform the development of
inclusive recreational content, helping us create solutions tailored to
meet specific requirements. As a token of appreciation for your time,
participants from the public will receive a $75 Visa gift card as
compensation.If you're interested in participating or know someone who
might be, please reach out to us at = EMAIL ADDRESS REMOVED = and
