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.
Assistant Secretary Castle to Discuss Administration Progress on Increasing Renewable Energy at National Hydropower Association Conference Monday
WASHINGTON, D.C.—On Monday, April 16, Assistant Secretary of the Interior - Water and Science Anne Castle is expected to release a progress report on strategies to develop new U.S. hydropower generation at the National Hydropower Association Conference at the Capital Hilton.
The report highlights the collaborative work of the Department of the Interior, the Department of the Army, and the Department of Energy to implement a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) among the agencies signed in March 2010 to advance development of clean, reliable, cost-effective and sustainable hydropower generation as part of President Obama's comprehensive energy strategy.
The two-year progress report details accomplishments toward achieving 13 high-level goals named in the MOU and 17 specific action items for helping to meet those goals. Collaboration and partnerships with other federal agencies, the hydropower industry, the research community, and numerous stakeholders, have helped these agencies succeed in their efforts.
