Mary Ellen Brandell Access to Recreation Fund
As chair of the Access to Recreation Advisory Committee, Mary Ellen Brandell established a fund to help insure maintenance of the Access Adventure Trail and to fund future universally accessible projects for the Mt.

It will forever provide support to recreation projects that engage individuals with disabilities in recreation experiences through accessible design features that go above and beyond minimal compliance with the American with Disabilities Act.
