Assistive Listening Program
Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore has initiated a program aimed at improving the park's ability to provide information and interpretive services to members of its staff and the visiting public who have experienced some degree of hearing loss. To accomplish this, the park has installed a permanent Assistive Listening Device at the Philip A. Hart Visitor Center Information Desk. A compact TTY device is also available for use at the Visitor Center's pay telephone.
For interpretive programs in the visitor center, ranger-led walks out on the trail, or for the evening programs in the campgrounds, portable wireless FM Assistive Listening Devices are also available. A portable wireless device is also available at the Glen Haven General Store. Rangers are trained in the use of this technology.
Visitors are urged to request the amplification devices by calling the visitor center in advance of an interpretive program (231-326-4700 ext 5010).
