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.
DOINews: Case Study on USGS Climate Change Multimedia Products
The Institute at the Golden Gate is doing a case study on USGS climate related multimedia for a report on climate change communication in parks. The multimedia items they are considering to include are the USGS Climate Connections video in Glacier National Park, USGS glacier repeat photography, a USGS photography exhibit “Losing a Legacy: A Photographic Story of Disappearing Glaciers,” and some podcasts, videos and other items. The report will highlight a range of case studies by park and ecosystem type, and spotlight best-practice programs, tools and initiatives.
