Mountains, Rivers, Rocks, Clouds--They're All Deaf!

Yosemite is a naturally Deaf-friendly place. It's the outdoors! You don't need to hear here. You can camp, swim, float, hike, bike, and take in all the scenery without any need for hearing or interpreting. Working here reminded me of this wonderful Clayton Valli poem, "Deaf World," about the natural connection many Deaf people have with the outdoors.

Riparian communities are adjacent to the river channel and tributaries; they are the interface between the river and surrounding meadow and upland communities. They provide specialized habitat and important nutrients to the meadow and river systems.
