ACA Instructor of the Month is Wayne Douchkoff from Bradenton, Florida! In conjunction with ACA Florida and the Florida Paddling Trails Association, Wayne has conducted several “Paddlers Environmental Toolkit” programs around Florida to teach paddlers about local ecosystems. Part of the training addresses how to protect the environment, how to safely interact with nature, and who to contact about local environmental issues. Wayne volunteers with a local organization to serve paddlers with vision impairments. As physical disabilities sometimes affect those with vision impairment, Wayne has had multiple opportunities to use both Adaptive Paddling and Advanced Communication skills that he learned during ACA Universal Paddling workshops.
