Visit Arches and discover a landscape of contrasting colors, landforms and textures unlike any other in the world. The park has over 2,000 natural stone arches, in addition to hundreds of soaring pinnacles, massive fins and giant balanced rocks. This red rock wonderland will amaze you with its formations, refresh you with its trails, and inspire you with its sunsets.
A rugged, whitewater river flowing northward through deep canyons, the New River is among the oldest rivers on the continent. New River Gorge National River in West Virginia encompasses over 70,000 acres of land along the New River, is rich in cultural and natural history, and offers an abundance of scenic and recreational opportunities.
Denali is six million acres of wild land, bisected by one ribbon of road. Travelers along it see the relatively low-elevation taiga forest give way to high alpine tundra and snowy mountains, culminating in North America's tallest peak, 20,310' Denali. Wild animals large and small roam un-fenced lands, living as they have for ages. Solitude, tranquility and wilderness await.

Will Present: Applying Climate Impacts Science for Resource Management, Planning and Adaptation
About the Talk: The USGS National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center (NCCWSC; https://nccwsc.usgs.gov/) provides natural resource managers with tools and information needed to address the impacts of climate change. In particular NCCWSC focuses on the development of climate-change adaptation strategies in the context of DOI resources, while also working collaboratively with the management community at large. As a part of this mission, NCCWSC manages the eight DOI/USGS Climate Science Centers (CSCs; http://www.doi.gov/csc/), and works closely with the Landscape Conservation Cooperatives at both regional and national levels. Please join NCCWSC Chief Doug Beard and Alaska CSC Director Steve Gray for an update and Q&A on the implementation and growth of these programs. This event will be held at USGS in the Glenn Olds Hall Conference Room from 10-11:00 AM, Wednesday, October 23.
