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).
Any person who is adversely affected by a new regulation may request that the Federal Subsistence Board reconsider its decision by filing a Request for Reconsideration. A Request for Reconsideration must be submitted in writing to the Federal Subsistence Board within 60 days after a regulation takes effect or is published in the Federal Register, whichever comes first.
The written appeal must provide the Board with enough information to show why the action should be reconsidered. The Board will accept a Request for Reconsideration only if it is based upon information not previously considered by the Board; demonstrates that the information used by the Board is incorrect; or demonstrates that the Board's interpretation of information, applicable law, or regulation is in error or contrary to existing law. These guidelines and requirements can be found in 36 CFR242.20 and 50 CFR 100.20.
To submit a Request for Reconsideration, please provide the following information:
Organization (if applicable)
Provide the regulation that you wish the Board to reconsider and the date of Federal Register publication of that action
Provide a detailed statement of how you are adversely affected by the action
Provide a detailed statement of the issues raised by the Board's action, with specific references to:
information not previously considered by the Board and/or information used by the Board that is incorrect
how the Board's interpretation of information, applicable law, or regulation is in error or contrary to existing law
Describe how you would like the regulation changed.
