Wood Lake Nature Center debuts all-terrain wheelchairs
Wood Lake Nature Center recently acquired two Grit Freedom Chairs for use on the trails. These manual, all-terrain wheelchairs designed by MIT engineers were funded by round-up donations at Richfield Liquor stores. They have a chain drive system that the visitor can operate themselves, or a caregiver can assist with the handlebars. Adult and youth-sized chairs are available. They are easy to operate and will allow our visitors to navigate our trails with ease.
