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 sheep season on Federal Public Lands in Unit 23 and Unit 26A, that portion west of Howard Pass and the Etivluk River
The Federal Subsistence Board has closed Federal public lands in Unit 23 and Unit 26A, that portion west of Howard Pass and the Etivluk River, to the hunting of sheep from August 10, 2014 to April 30, 2015.
Recent surveys, conducted in July 2014, by the National Park Service in coordination with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G), indicate a population decline between 50-75 percent from previous surveys in 2011 in the affected area(s). Additionally, a low number of legal rams, coupled with low recruitment rates, suggest that any harvest could be detrimental to the population. Failure to close the affected area(s) could prolong or worsen the current decline and significantly hamper recovery. As a result, Federal public lands in Unit 23 and Unit 26A, that portion west of Howard Pass and the Etivluk River, are closed for the 2014-2015 regulatory season. This action is consistent with recent closures to hunting taken by ADF&G in the same area under State regulations.
