About This Publication

Land trusts around the country provide access to nature, offering a valuable service to people in the form of health and wellness benefits gained from being outdoors. These benefits are well documented, from better overall health through exercise to reducing stress levels in the calming presence of nature. But land trusts need to ask: “Who are we leaving behind?” This guide addresses that question with regard to one group — people with disabilities — and provides practical ideas for incorporating inclusion into your land trust’s programming and organizational culture.
