Visit Arches and discover a landscape of contrasting colors, landforms and textures unlike any other in the world. The park has over 2,000 natural stone arches, in addition to hundreds of soaring pinnacles, massive fins and giant balanced rocks. This red rock wonderland will amaze you with its formations, refresh you with its trails, and inspire you with its sunsets.
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.

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.
