Disabilities Accessible

The Center is handicapped accessible and is used daily by individuals with disabilities.  Our nature trails are not wheelchair accessible.  Our driveway, a green feature of the Center, is unpaved and during wet weather it becomes muddy and soft in places.  There are two major entrances that are wheelchair accessible and vehicle accessible, i.e. you can pull a car or van right to curbside to a flat hard entrance. The facility is a three-story building with an elevator that services all three floors.
