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.

On April 7, Interior published the DOI Open Government Plan. To ensure institutionalization and lasting sustainability of open government principals within DOI, this plan is purposely designed to be a living document – a frequently updated framework that provides direction throughout the Agency. The nature of this plan requires constant incorporation of feedback and is intended to be updated as frequently as each quarter. We encourage you to read our open government plan and provide us with feedback on ways you think it can be improved.
