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.

Denver Office Named Among Top Workplaces in 2012 Denver Post Survey
DENVER, CO - On Monday, Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar will celebrate and recognize the work of over 500 Office of Natural Resources Revenue (ONRR) employees based in the Denver office. Identified as one of the top places to work in the Denver Metropolitan area in 2012, ONRR was selected based on an employee survey conducted by the Denver Post in late December 2011.
In addition to the Denver Post recognition, ONRR has also recently been publicly recognized for its royalty auditing work, receiving the highest possible rating from an independent peer review. The December 2011 announcement represents the third consecutive peer review rating indicating that ONRR performs its audit functions in accordance with the highest professional standards.
The Office of Natural Resources Revenue, part of the DOI's Office of Policy, Management and Budget, is responsible for collecting and disbursing revenues from energy production that occurs onshore on Federal and American Indian lands, and offshore in the Outer Continental Shelf. During Fiscal Year 2011, the agency disbursed more than $11.2 billion to states, American Indian Tribes and individual Indian mineral owners, and to various Federal accounts, including the U.S. Treasury, the Land and Water Conservation Fund, and the Reclamation Fund.
