Are you looking for something fun to do in March?
Lisa Dixon, a Program Manager in UCP’s Supported Employment Department (Employment Solutions), discovered that Portland Audubon is hosting an "Accessible Birding Outing” at Whitaker Ponds on March 25th, from 10am-12pm.
Portland Audubon says, “Migration is just starting, so we’ll look for some early songbirds, as well as woodpeckers, ducks and perhaps even some raptors. Together we’ll make our way through the natural area by foot or by wheelchair, observing and learning about birds, plants, and other wildlife.
Portland Audubon says that the event is "reserved for people who identify as disabled, chronically ill, or neurodivergent and their family, friends or caregivers. Our accessible outings are made for and led by birders with disabilities. Beginning birders are welcome!"
The world of disabilities funding can be confusing!
That’s why we’d like to share a link to a really helpful summary about the upcoming Oregon Needs Assessment (ONA). The ONA will affect everyone who qualifies for developmental disability services in Oregon who chooses to receive services from the Community First Choice (K) Plan.
Thanks to The Oregon Support Services Association for creating and sharing the summary.
