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 Pacific Islands Climate Science Center (PI CSC) is designed to encourage, facilitate, and participate in cooperative action to address climate adaptation science needs across the Pacific Islands region. The PI CSC relies upon priorities identified by regional resource managers, including managers from relevant Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs), and coordinates or integrates scientific activities with other public and private science entities working in the region. The PI CSC was designed as a federal-university collaboration and is located on a host university campus and is comprised of a multi-institution consortium. The PI CSC university consortium also maintains a website for the PI CSC. Check out this website for additional information about the PI CSC: http://apdrc.soest.hawaii.edu/PICSC/!
