Birdability: Inclusion & Access
February 16, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Birding is an activity that can bring so much joy and empowerment to everybody, but not everybody is able to go birding easily. Birdability is a brand new non-profit, based in the US but with a global reach. Through education, outreach and advocacy, Birdability works to ensure the birding community and the outdoors are welcoming, inclusive, safe and accessible for everybody. Birdability focuses on people with mobility challenges, blindness or low vision, chronic illness, intellectual or developmental disabilities, mental illness, and those who are neurodivergent, deaf or hard of hearing or who have other health concerns.
Join us online via Zoom on February 16th at 6 pm. Check back for the Zoom registration info.
Presenter Freya McGregor (she/her), OTR/L, CIG is an occupational therapist. Birding since childhood, her ‘dodgy’ knee often creates an accessibility challenge for her. With a clinical background in blindness and low vision services, she works in her spare time for the radio show and podcast Ray Brown’s Talkin’ Birds, and is passionate about enabling all birders and potential future birders to enjoy birding and nature as much as she does.
