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.
The Northwest Climate Science Center (NW CSC) funds research projects designed to help meet the climate science needs of natural and cultural resource managers in the Northwest. The science needs are identified by federal, tribal, and state resource managers, three partner Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) and other stakeholders in the Northwest.
Descriptions of funded research projects and their products and data are available on the website of the National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center (NCCWSC).
