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: Powell Center Funding Opportunity for Research on Sage-Grouse
The DOI Climate Science Centers
and the USGS Ecosystems Mission Area
are interested in promoting synthesis activities surrounding
questions about the implications of climate change effects on Greater
sage-grouse and sagebrush habitat in the semi-arid west. They are
coordinating with the Powell Center
to provide funding for a Working Group on this topic. A working group
would synthesize existing climate science as it relates to Greater
sage-grouse and the sagebrush habitat that supports the species with a
consideration for how climate change may be altering the sagebrush
We encourage teams of scientists working at the
intersection of climate science and sage brush/sage grouse to consider
developing a Powell Center Working Group proposal
related to this topic.
Information pertaining to the Powell Center
can be found at powellcenter.usgs.gov. The deadline for proposals is April 30, 2014 for Working Groups starting
in FY15. All Powell Center Working Group proposals will be reviewed by
the Science Advisory Board. Please refer questions to Jill Baron or
Marty Goldhaber (firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com).@usgs.gov>@usgs.gov>
