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.
DOINews: AK CSC Director Travels to the Pacific Islands to Present "Linking Climate Impacts Science and Resource Management: Examples from the Last Frontier"
Dr. Steve Gray, Alaska Climate Science Center Director, will travel to The University of Hawaii at Manoa and at Hilo to give seminars on "Linking Climate Impacts Science and Resource Management: Examples from the Last Frontier".
Dates and Times:
Friday, Nov. 1, 2013 from 2:00 - 3:00 pm at the Kuykendall Auditorium, University of Hawaii, Manoa (hosted by the Pacific Islands Climate Science Center).
Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2013 from 12:00 - 1:00 pm at the USDA Forest Service, Institute of Pacific Islands Forestry, 60 Nowelo St., Hilo.
In these seminars, Dr. Gray will give an update on the implementation and growth of the programs at the AK CSC. The presentation will focus on how we might apply “lessons learned” in the Alaska CSC region in a broader resource management context. The talks will also discuss ways in which partnerships among agencies, university researchers and stakeholders can help us weather budget uncertainties, while also maximizing the effectiveness of our collective climate-change response efforts.”
