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.
The Southwest Climate Science Center is planning for the initial Southwest Climate Science Summit to be held in Tucson, Arizona, June 11 - 14, 2012. SWCSC scientists will be working with federal, state, and tribal stakeholders to help structure the Summit agenda. Summit participants will have opportunities to provide perspectives about the climate-related research needed to help inform future societal and resource management decisions. The Summit will be an important step in helping to structure future climate-effects research in the Southwest.
