We'd like to share this American Sign Language video about Whiskeytown's invasive plants. Learn more about invasive plant management with Karen, a Deaf biological science technician, who talks about some of the species that the Invasive Plant Crew treats and her experience working as a member of our crew.

Image Descriptions on Social Media

Whiskeytown's interpretive park rangers provide a short written description of each image posted on Facebook and Instagram in order to enable visitors that are blind to use their screen reader software to then understand what the image depicts. We also provide alternative text for photos on this website so that screen readers can be used successfully.

Requesting a Sign Language Interpretation

Whiskeytown contracts with outside ASL interpreters to provide sign language interpretation for visitors to the park. If you plan on attending a ranger-led program during your visit and would like an ASL interpreter, advance notice (at least two weeks) is required. We will make every effort to provide an ASL interpreter, however, last minute requests may be difficult to accommodate due to distance and availability.
