Explore and Experience Freedom Trax at Pismo State Beach With NatureTrack

July 21 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Free

On Sunday, July 21 from 11am to 2pm, NatureTrack will be at Pismo State 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. Make your holiday trip to Pismo truly memorable. Residents of the Pismo who use wheelchairs have an opportunity to try these out and get out on the beach again. The RSVP form will give us the chance to have a Freedom Trax device ready for your chair. NatureTrack will also have two manual wheelchairs available for transfer should your wheelchair not fit on the device. Look for us by the Pismo Beach sign on the boardwalk.

NatureTrack connecting people to nature, every day, every way.

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.
