  • Different types of assignments and consumers an interpreter might work within the conservation field
  • History of Deaf conservation corps
  • Examples of work projects along with techniques, tool names and signs, and the various partners that are involved in the field

This is the workshop for you if you are interested in enhancing your knowledge and skillset within the conservation field. After completing this 2-hour workshop, you will receive 0.2 CEU from MERID.
