AUTHOR TALK - SYREN NAGAKYRIE and The Disabled Hiker's Guide to Western Washington & Oregon

Join us for an in person discussion and Q&A with author of The Disabled Hiker's Guide to Western Washington & Oregon, SYREN NAGAKYRIE!

The Disabled Hiker’s Guide to Western Washington and Oregon is the first book of its kind to consider the diverse needs of disabled people in the outdoors. This groundbreaking guidebook includes 60 outdoor adventures, including drive-
up experiences, verified wheelchair accessible trails, and foot trails suitable for disabled hikers.
This guide removes one of the barriers to access - a lack of information - by utilizing a rating system and detailed trail information designed for the disability community. Each trail is personally assessed according to Syren’s skilled
and detailed review and established accessibility guidelines.

Syren Nagakyrie (they/them) is the founder of Disabled Hikers, an entirely Disabled-led nonprofit organization building disability community and
justice in the outdoors. Syren writes trail guides, leads group hikes, and offers consultations throughout the Pacific Northwest and farther afield. Through years of trial and error, Syren discovered what makes the outdoors accessible
for them, and believes strongly in the importance of connection to place as an antidote to the isolation so many disabled people experience. They live in Forks, Washington.
