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.
Big Southern Butte is one of two domes rising from a sea of basalt near the center of the eastern Snake River Plain in Idaho. The butte is one of the largest volcanic domes in the world, but at 300,000 years old it is also one of the youngest. Hikers who trek to the 7,550-foot high summit are rewarded with spectacular panoramic views. Photo by Devin Englestead, BLM Upper Snake Wildlife Biologist.

Established in November 22, 1939, the refuge has provided a critical stopover and wintering spot for thousands of sandhill cranes, geese and other waterfowl for 75 years. Bosque del Apache's sandhill crane population has multiplied from 18 birds in the 1840s to more than 20,000 birds today. Photo by Kim Hang Dessoliers (www.sharetheexperience.org).
Each Bureau or Office has in place an Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) process. The ADR process is intended to be a supplement to, and not a replacement for, the normal Federal Sector EEO complaints process. Your participation as a complainant in the ADR process is voluntary. Should you participate in an ADR process, the pre-complaint process may extend to 90 days. The ADR process (as well as pre-complaint counseling) may result in an informal resolution of your complaint. If the ADR process does not result in an informal resolution of your complaint, you still have the right to continue pursuit of your complaint, through the regular Federal Sector EEO complaints process. Questions concerning whether, how and when you should use the ADR process should be directed to your Bureau or Office ADR Coordinator or the EEO Officer.
