ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) PLAN*
In accordance with our mission to preserve and perpetuate the rich history of Commercial Township and the Maurice River area, we are committed to making our facilities accessible to all who wish to visit regardless of individual disabilities.
While access to our second floor displays is limited due to stairs in two of the three buildings on our campus, we have been fortunate to obtain - through a generous donation - a professionally produced video documentary of our museum with all our displays, buildings, and grounds which can be viewed by anyone who is unable to climb stairs due to physical handicaps.
This video documentary can be shown on our audio-visual equipment in the cookhouse which is easily accessible without the use of stairs or ramps.
The use of animal guides is allowable throughout the campus.
Complaints and responses to complaints may be submitted in a variety of formats in order to accommodate various disabilities. These formats may include, but are not limited to, written letters or emails, verbal phone conversations, person to person conversation and via third parties. Meetings with individuals making complaints will be held in a fully accessible location.
