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: NE CSC Stakeholder Meeting Presentations Now Available Online
The Northeast Climate Science Center's first two Stakeholder Outreach and Science Planning meetings were recently held in January 2013. Both meetings attracted a broad and diverse array of more than 150 natural resource management stakeholders from federal institutions such as US Fish & Wildlife, US EPA, and NOAA to municipal leaders, non-governmental organizations, and tribal representatives. The meetings were structured around paired presentations from both Consortium scientists and representative stakeholders according to our seven science themes, all related to climate change adaptation through natural resource management. All participants provided comments on specific science needs essential to their organization in planning for climate change. The NE CSC is incorporating this valuable feedback into the 5-year Strategic Science Agenda, which will guide the future science directions of the Center.
Presentations from this meeting included topics on the climate change impacts on
Presentations and full summaries of both meetings from our facilitators at the Keystone Center have been posted on the NE CSC university website. Please take a look! http://necsc.umass.edu/workshops
