Phillips, a certified orientation and mobility specialist and teacher of the blind and visually impaired, has led a project to make all 40-plus miles of trails in the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve in Kansas accessible to those without sight. By October 1, visitors of the national park will be able to check out a Trekker Breeze+ handheld GPS device that provides audio cues to guide them along the park's trails.

"Just like the story of Hansel and Gretel, we went out in the park and laid down electronic breadcrumbs," Phillips said. "The device picks up those breadcrumbs and announces that information as you walk by on the trail. For example, as you walk by Fox Creek, the device will tell you that this is Fox Creek, what kind of stream it is, that these streams are mostly fed by springs, how many springs are on the property, et cetera."
Those working on the project visited each point where the electronic breadcrumbs are located, recorded the latitude and longitude, and attached information about the site to the spot on a map, Phillips said. The device makes it possible for a person without sight to walk the preserve's trails without a sighted guide.
"It's the information a sighted person might find if they took out the brochure and read about that spot on the trail," Phillips said.

"We're lucky to have sourced [Phillips]. It was an easy justification because of his background and his expertise."
Phillips, a former high school teacher, came to NIU when he decided to pursue his master's degree. He met Gaylen Kapperman, coordinator of NIU's renowned Visual Disabilities Program, and the rest is history.
"When you meet Gaylen, your life tends to change, and he changed mine," Phillips said.
...
By the time the funding was approved, Phillips had retired, but couldn't resist coming out of retirement for the challenge.
"It was such a dynamic opportunity; I couldn't let it pass me by," he said.
