Accessibility Award for Lewis & Clark National Historic Park

A quick story today, taken from the Daily Astorian in Oregon, "North Coast park honored for helping disabled visitors gain access to history". The Lewis and Clark National Historical Park, along with 5 others around the country, was honored by the National Park Service for creating an accessible environment for their visitors, including interpretive programs, wayside parking lots, trails, A/V programs, and even providing an electric cart if needed.

I've got another little note I can add. I've spoken recently with a Park Service friend of mine. She's said that new Director Mary Bomar has asked that all Audio/Visual programs (the official orientation videos and theater programs) be upgraded to meet minimum accessibility guidelines. The expense for this upgrade will come at the national level, and not from local park budgets.
