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.
Strategic Plans and other key documents (Science Agendas, Workplans, Annual Reports etc.) are developed by the Climate Science Centers, with input from natural and cultural resource managers, to guide each CSC in the identification of research priorities and to ensure that these efforts address management priorities. These documents provide blueprints for how the CSCs intend to support DOI's climate strategy to address the impacts of climate change.
