Everything Illuminated and Resounded: DURATEQ® at the Oregon Caves National Monument and Preserve

Good news! Our DURATEQ® Assistive Technology System continues revealing the beauties and curiosities of the colorful world around for the people with visual and hearing impairments. Now they can soak up a rich palette of impressions at the newly renovated visitor center of the Oregon Caves National Monument and Preserve.

Quite a sight it is! During cave tours and hiking trails, one can enjoy the unique atmosphere of a prehistoric corner of the earth along with a fantastic chorus of sounds within the caves. Crawling under the low roofs, guests should be ready to meet some really frightening figurines of cave-inhabiting creatures.

Previously the monument occupied 480 acres, but now the territory expanded by an additional 4,000 acres, providing a comprehensive range of opportunities for entertainment and recreation. The renovated park is to begin accepting guests in the spring of 2015. Thus, very soon numerous visitors of the Oregon Caves will lodge the refurnished guestrooms and go ahead hiking, hunting and enjoying unexplored ranger programs having our DURATEQ® in their pockets.
