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.
Ms. Katherine Underwood joined the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, The Chickasaw Nation, and the South Central Climate Science Center (SC CSC) team this July.
Ms. Underwood will be assisting our Sustainability Scientist in preparing tribal outreach documents, preparing for tribal conferences, meetings, seminars, and other Climate Science Center related events, and organizing and updating tribal contact lists. Her interests are in wildlife conservation and forensics and she will be graduating from the University of Central Oklahoma with a double major in biology and forensic science. The SC CSC team is very excited that Katherine is joining our team in furthering our tribal engagement efforts.
