I first started voluntering with SPLORE in the early 1980's and continued to do so through 1987. I loved the experience. I feel this is such a wonderful organiztion. Mostly I am thrilled that SPLORE is still in operation. Special Needs populations can have wonderful outdoor recreactional experiences. No one is disabled. We are all able body person. I am a retired Special Eduacation teacher. SPLORE helped me to pick this as my career path. katherine garlington
