A rugged, whitewater river flowing northward through deep canyons, the New River is among the oldest rivers on the continent.

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.
The Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources held a full committee hearing on wildlife management in Alaska under the Alaska National Interest Lands Act (ANILCA) and the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA), with a focus on subsistence management issues. Subsistence under ANILCA is the “customary and traditional uses by rural Alaska residents of wild, renewable resources for direct personal or family consumption.” Wildlife management and subsistence in Alaska is a complex issue governed by many statutes and informed by a number of perspectives of stakeholders and managers. The hearing took place at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, September 19, 2013.
