Join NatureTrack on WEST BEACH, Sunday June 23 Free Freedom Trax Devices For Wheelchair Users Will Be Available

June 23 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Free

(Santa Barbara) Smack dab in the middle of all the Santa Barbara beaches is West Beach. Steps away from dozens of hotels with a majestic view looking out at the Channel Islands, the ocean, the sandspit, the Breakwater and the shorebirds. You are invited to come see and try the Freedom Trax devices in action. Join NatureTrack on Sunday, June 23rd from 11am to 2pm, when we will be at West Beach to introduce those who use wheelchairs to the Freedom Trax devices at no cost to make a closer connection to nature. These devices enable users to get up close to the waters’ edge and navigate the beach under your own control. Dry or wet sand – doesn’t matter. An off-road revelation for anyone who uses a wheelchair or may have an equilibrium issue. Anywhere there’s uneven ground this device lets you feel as if you are on a level playing field, so to speak. It’s a game changer!

NatureTrack will have several Freedom Trax devices available for wheelchair users to use on a first-come, first-served basis. We do ask for RSVPs to be able to accommodate people in wheelchairs more efficiently. This apparatus can quickly and easily convert a manual wheelchair into a battery-powered, all-terrain vehicle allowing those users to traverse beach sand and trails independently. This unit puts the ‘free’ in freedom.

This is a great opportunity to try these firsthand and get out into nature on the beach. The RSVP form will give us the chance to have a Freedom Trax device ready for you and your chair. NatureTrack will also have two manual wheelchairs available for transfer should your wheelchair not fit on the device. Look for our pop-up banner at the intersection where Cabrillo Blvd. and Chapala Street meet.

If your hotel management is interested in knowing more about the NatureTrack Freedom Trax loan program, just give us a call. (805)886-2047 or email Sue@naturetrack.org

NatureTrack is a 501c3 nonprofit that provides outdoor docent-led field trips during the usual school day for Santa Barbara County children at no cost to the schools or students, utilizing local trails and beaches throughout north and south county. NatureTrack’s mission is two-fold: to encourage students to embrace our natural world with respect and wonder, inspiring them to be stewards of our natural resources, and prepare school-aged students with the attitudes, leadership skills, and habits for lifelong learning.

NatureTrack expanded its mission of connecting kids to nature and is now connecting people who use wheelchairs of all ages to get out into nature using Freedom Trax. This device quickly changes a manual wheelchair into a battery powered, all-terrain vehicle which can easily traverse sand and trails. Now NatureTrack wheelchair users of any age can enjoy natural areas previously inaccessible to them using Trax. https://naturetrack.org. NatureTrack is expanding its reach up to San Luis Obispo and down to Ventura County with the Trax program. Thanks go to the grantors including: UCSB’s Coastal Fund, California State Coastal Conservancy, Parks California ‘Route to Parks’ grant and the Coastal Resource Enhancement Fund. And now, the California Access for All grant to expand the Freedom Tracks program up to North SB County.
