Will Sierra visited Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park following his C4-5 spinal cord injury. In a recent blog post titled “Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park", Sierra describes his boat ride down Pepper Creek. When describing the accessible features of the park pontoon boat he said, “I rolled onto the pontoon boat via a gently sloping dock-ramp lowered upon the deck near the bow of the boat where there is plenty of flat deck for two power chairs, possibly three, or four manual wheelchairs.” He wrote about utilizing the wheelchair accessible floating platform for its great view of the pool near the spring vent.
