Wheelchair-accessible mats now available at Dauphin Island's West End Beach

Recently, the MBNEP had the honor of presenting to the citizens of Coastal Alabama a new way for those with physical challenges to get out on the beach and into the sand— two extensive ADA/wheelchair compliant beach mats on the north and south sides of the western end of Dauphin Island. The project is a collaboration with the Town of Dauphin Island and the Krewe of Kindness, a disability-affirming organization.

ADA Mats to be Installed on the Western End of Dauphin Island

Coming soon to the western end of Dauphin Island! One of the core values of the Mobile Bay National Estuary Program is Access. That means we help provide the tools to create better and more opportunities for people and their families to use and enjoy our waterways. At the MBNEP, we know that easy access to the water should be available to everyone, regardless of the physical differences between us.
