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.

Federal Subsistence Board closes the moose season on Federal public lands in
Units 26C and 26B remainder
The Federal Subsistence Board has closed Federal public lands in Units 26C and 26B remainder to the hunting of moose from July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2015.
Recent surveys, conducted in April 2014 by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, indicate that the moose population on the North Slope coastal plain within Unit 26C (North Slope population) has declined by over 50 percent since 2011. During the survey no yearlings were observed, which indicates limited or no recruitment will occur this year. Similar declines were observed by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) in the moose populations in adjacent Units 26A and 26B. Due to the population decline and limited or no recruitment, the moose season on Federal public lands in Units 26C and 26B remainder is closed for the 2014-2015 regulatory season. This action is consistent with actions taken by ADF&G in adjacent units and is necessary to address conservation concerns for the moose population.
