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).

The Federal Subsistence Board has approved a winter moose season with a harvest limit of one antlered bull on the portions of Unit 17C within the Togiak National Wildlife Refuge from January 22 to February 4, 2014. The additional season will provide opportunity for rural residents of Unit 17, Goodnews Bay, Levelock, Nondalton, and Platinum who were unable to harvest moose earlier in the regulatory year due to poor weather conditions.
Federally qualified subsistence users may harvest one antlered bull on Togiak National Wildlife Refuge lands in Unit 17C until the end of the season on February 4, 2014, or earlier if the season is closed by a subsequent announcement. A Federal registration permit is required and will be issued by the Togiak National Wildlife Refuge. Harvest reports must be submitted within 24 hours of harvesting an antlered bull. Unsuccessful hunters or those who did not hunt must submit their report within 15 days after the close of season. Federally qualified subsistence users who already harvested a moose may not participate in this season, unless they are participating under designated hunter regulations.
