Birdability Week is a celebration of birders with disabilities and other health concerns, and an opportunity to ensure that birding and the outdoors are welcoming, inclusive, safe and accessible for everybody
Valley Forge Audubon Society is committed to inclusion, diversity, equity and accessibility in the birding community and beyond. We are excited to bring the joys of birding – the fun of seeing or hearing birds, the social benefits of being part of a like-minded community, and the health and wellness benefits humans receive from spending time in nature – to “everyone and every body”, regardless of someone’s physical, mental, emotional, or societal challenges. Long-time birders, ‘fledgling’ birders, able-bodied birders, and those with disabilities and health concerns are all welcome at VFAS’s programs.
We offer a number of outings that are accessible for those with various access challenges and/or health concerns. We continue to look for and add accessible locations to our event offerings on an ongoing basis. Let us know if you have suggestions.
Our upcoming outing at Wilson Farm Park on Oct 27 is accessible to those with mobility challenges. We hope you can join us.
