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.
The Councils play an integral role in management of subsistence fish and wildlife resources on Federal public lands in Alaska. They meet at least twice a year, hear public testimony, and provide recommendations to the Federal Subsistence Board on subsistence management issues. Council members must be knowledgeable about the uses of fish and wildlife resources in their region. Council membership appointments are typically 3-year terms.
