Project Description

Located in Jackson Hole, WY, at the southern tip of Yellowstone National Park, this visitor center is located on the western tip of the National Elk Refuge. As a “combined” audio described tour, a 25 minute interpretive tour is available to all visitors and an audio described version — with an additional 45 minutes of description, direction and panel text — is available to visitors with visual impairments. The staff simply switches the audio guide between the interpretive and AD tour upon request. NOTE – it is the same audio tour experience available to sighted visitors, only with an additional descriptive element available for visitors with low or no vision.

“Working on this tour was a new experience for me… a different way of thinking at first, but would have to say that I ‘got it.’ Stasha and Mike really know their business when it comes to this type of work.”

- Jackie Jacobson, Visitor Services Manager, Audubon National Wildlife Refuge
