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.
DOINews: Save the Dates for the New SW CSC Webinars!
The Southwest Climate Science Center is pleased to announce a new webinar series focused on climate science and resource management decisions in the Southwest.
The goal of the series is to create an interactive forum for resource managers, scientists, and other interested parties to discuss regional resource management concerns, climate information needs, and mechanisms for delivering that information in the most usable and useful ways.
The first webinar in the new Southwest Climate Science Center (SW CSC) webinar series will be held on Thursday, November 7 at 11 AM PST (2 PM EST). The topic of this webinar is "The IPCC Working Group 1 Report and Implications for the Southwest" and will be presented by Jonathan Overpeck, SW CSC University Director/University of Arizona.
