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.

As the SWCSC steps up its efforts to form a Stakeholder Advisory Committee and move science planning forward, the Landscape Conservation Cooperatives are an important venue to connect with federal, state, and tribal partners. On September 8, the Southern Rockies Landscape Conservation Cooperative held a Steering Committee meeting in Denver at which interim SWCSC director, Dave Busch, briefed the Committee on the Center's recent progress and discussed cooperative opportunities with Committee representatives.
Dr. Busch also provided a similar briefing for the Desert LCC Steering Committee in Albuquerque on September 27.
