The NPS not only works to make parks accessible to those with disabilities but also interprets disability history. The Disability History series brings attention to some of the many disability stories interwoven across more than 400 national parks and National Park Service programs. “Disability stories” refer to the array of experiences by, from, and about people with disabilities represented across our nation. People with disabilities are the largest minority in the United States, but their stories often remain untold. Explore these stories to learn more.
