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.

Subject: Handbook on Complaints Processing
This Handbook represents the Department of the Interior's (Department) guidance to Equal Employment Opportunity Professionals responsible for processing complaints of employment discrimination filed against the Department. The Handbook encompasses all guidance that has been developed and disseminated through previous Equal Opportunity Directives and contains new guidance on areas not previously addressed. You should use this Handbook in conjunction with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's regulations at Title 29, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 1614 and the corresponding Management Directive 110.
The information in the Handbook may be revised periodically with replacement pages of the concerned topic. Additions to the Handbook may also be made in the future concerning new topics. We anticipate that there will always be new case law developed that may impact the way we handle complaints.
The appendices in the back of the Handbook are samples of forms and letters which you may use or, you may use your own forms and formats. At a minimum, the information in your letters and forms should contain the information required by Federal regulations and Departmental guidance.
We sincerely hope this guidance will be helpful to you. If, at any time, you have technical questions about complaints processing, we encourage you to contact us. We're here to serve you.
