Elisabeth Graham and Heartland Forest – S01 E04

Podcast microphone

In this episode of the Have Disability, Will Travel podcast we talk with Elisabeth Graham, Executive Director of Heartland Forest Nature Experience in Niagara Falls, Canada.

Located within the urban boundary of Niagara Falls, Heartland Forest is a wonderful example of a Carolinian Forest including seasonal wetlands. Visitors of all ages and abilities can learn and grow while enjoying nature and the facilities. In 2004 the first accessible trails were laid – two kilometers meandering through the beautiful forest. The following year a wheelchair accessible tree house was built complete with a 110 foot ramp. Next a fishing pond, followed by a merry-go-round, swing and nature-themed miniature golf course – each unique in their design and function and suitable for wheelchair and scooter accessibility.

In addition to talking about her current work, we also discuss the challenges and joys of traveling with a family member with Autism.

Please be sure to visit Heartland Forest’s website and follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
