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).

Subject: Human Relations Institute Survey
As we have discussed with you on several occasions; we are preparing to offer training courses in EEO and related subjects to you as EEO Professional, EEO Counselors, manager, supervisors and employees. Attached is a survey of the kinds of courses we typically get requests for and find a need to offer. So that we may plan for and meet your training needs for the next fiscal year, please inform us on which course you would like to see offered, the approximate number of attendees, and the best most convenient location for the potential attendees.
Once we receive your survey, we will assess which courses will be offered, obtain the trainers/instructors, assess the costs, and determine the locations. We will then provide you with a training schedule with this information for FY 2002.
We believe it is important for us to stay abreast of current issues and case law affecting the implementation of the EEO and Civil Rights programs. Your response to the survey by August 20, 2001, will be greatly appreciated.
