Calling All Nature-Loving Wheelchair Users! Explore and Experience Freedom Trax at Gaviota Beach For Free

April 14 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm PDT


On Sunday, April 14th from 11 am – 2pm, NatureTrack will be at the Gaviota State Beach to introduce those who use wheelchairs to the Freedom Trax devices at no cost!  Get up close to the waters’ edge, navigate the beach under your own control. This is a real game changer.  

NatureTrack will have several Freedom Trax devices available for wheelchair users to use on a first-come, first-served basis. We ask you for RSVPs to be able to accommodate all interested people. This apparatus can quickly and easily convert a manual wheelchair into a battery-powered, all-terrain vehicle allowing those users to traverse beach sand and trails independently. 

There is no cost to use the Freedom Trax, courtesy of NatureTrack, which will also have two manual wheelchairs available for transfer should your wheelchair not fit on the device. Learn more here:  https://naturetrack.org/freedom-trax-faq/



Meet in the Parking lot — Look for the pop-up banner and the NatureTrack vans. 

RSVP: (805) 886-2047 or e-mail abby@naturetrack.org

NatureTrack… connecting people to nature, every day, every way!

NatureTrack is a 501c3 nonprofit that provides outdoor docent-led field trips during the usual school day for Santa Barbara County children at no cost to the schools or students, utilizing local trails and beaches throughout north and south county. NatureTrack’s mission is two-fold: to encourage students to embrace our natural world with respect and wonder, inspiring them to be stewards of our natural resources, and prepare school-aged students with the attitudes, leadership skills, and habits for lifelong learning.

NatureTrack expanded its mission of connecting kids to nature and is now connecting people who use wheelchairs of all ages to get out into nature using Freedom Trax. This device quickly changes a manual wheelchair into a battery powered, all-terrain vehicle which can easily traverse sand and trails. Now NatureTrack wheelchair users of any age can enjoy natural areas previously inaccessible to them using Trax. https://naturetrack.org. NatureTrack is expanding its reach up to San Luis Obispo and down to Ventura County with the Trax program. Thanks go to the grantors including: UCSB’s Coastal Fund, California State Coastal Conservancy, Parks California ‘Route to Parks’ grant and the Coastal Resource Enhancement Fund. And now, the California Access for All grant to expand the Freedom Tracks program up to North SB County.
