Accessible Field Courses
A more detailed map and listing of accessible geoscience field trips, courses, and camps is coming soon.
Does your school or organization offer an accessible geoscience field experience that you would like to promote? Or do you currently offer a geoscience field course that you would like to make more accessible and inclusive? The IAGD is here to help you! Members of the IAGD are willing to assist in the process of creating a new opportunity, or making current field courses accessible for individuals with disabilities. For more information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
