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: SE CSC Sponsored Workshop on Conservation Decision Making
On February 27 and 28, 2013, the Southeast Climate Science Center funded a workshop hosted by the University of Georgia Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit and the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources at the University of Georgia. The workshop, Communicating and Using Uncertain Information in Conservation Decision Making, brought together an interdisciplinary group of practitioners to think about identifying research and strategic planning needs to facilitate science based decision support in the presence of uncertainty.
We invite you to view the plenary session talks by Dr. Marshall Sheperd (UGA and American Meteorological Association) and Dr. Michael Runge (USGS) that helped to frame the workshop.
