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.
The scientific priorities of the Pacific Islands Climate Science Center (PI CSC) are driven by the needs and priorities of the natural and cultural resource management communities in the region.
The Stakeholder Advisory Council (SAC) for the PI CSC will include representatives from those Landscape Conservation Cooperatives with all or a majority of their area within the Pacific Islands region, as well as other management and science partners in the region.
The SAC will meet at least annually and will approve the PI CSC Science Agenda, which identifies and prioritizes needs for research, monitoring, data management, and additional skills and capacities needed in the region.
