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.
Websites disseminating Research and Development (R&D) information
A list of DOI’s public websites disseminating research and development (R&D) information to the public, describing for each whether the website provides the public information about federally funded R&D activities and/or provides the results of Federal research.
U.S.Geological Survey (USGS)
As a result of the large amount of research and development (R&D) being done and presented throughout all science programs and locations of the USGS, the best single point of entry for information about USGS R&D activities and results are the agencies' main home page (http://usgs.gov/)
Because of the large amount of research and development being done within BLM, the best single point of entry is the BLM main home page athttp://www.blm.gov.
Entering ”research and development” into the BLM search engine will provide comprehensive results for links to BLM R&D. The links provide access to public information about past, present and future federally funded R&D activities and/or the results of Federal research and development efforts.
Because of the large amount of research and development (R&D) being done within the NPS, the best single point of entry is the NPS main home page athttp://www.nps.gov.
Entering “research and development” into the NPS search engine will provide information about past, present and future federally funded R&D activities and/or the results of Federal research and development efforts.
