Provide American Sign Language interpretation for occasional park events and visits by groups or individuals who use ASL. This interpreter will enable individuals who use ASL to have a good experience as they visit the park. This work is for local volunteers as the park has no housing. Face shields are available and physical distancing is possible for most of this work to reduce the risk of COVID-19 exposure.
