I Am A State Park Ambassador Because: I have found that America's state parks are the best places to take beautiful photos, which I love to do, and through this program I am hoping to share my pictures with other people interested in the parks. Also, I am affected by a disease called Muscular Dystrophy, requiring me to use a wheelchair. By visiting state parks and blogging about my experiences, I am hoping to help inform people of the accessibility of the parks and possibly make suggestions to improve the accessibility of existing parks and parks in the future.
