“Opening Doors To The Outdoors” 2020-2021

The Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor, (BHC) known for its rich history, has opened its borders to visitors previously unable to share in adventures. Adaptive outdoor programs in the Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor forge successful partnerships with multiple state, civic, nonprofits and private organizations. Adaptive cycling events welcome those with visual and cognitive impairments, the aged, and younger adults with a varied assortment of mobility limitations. Participants set out, some with trepidation, and return with wide and infectious smiles. Working in consultation with disabled communities, BHC strives to include all who wish to participate at whatever level they are able.
