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.
Reclamation -- Meeting water and power needs of the West's growing population
Reclamation, whose mission is to manage water and power in the Western United States, undertakes research and development to help ensure that these water and power needs are met effectively while protecting the environment and the public's investment in the water infrastructure it has constructed and operates. Such activities, often in cooperation with the private sector, universities, and other governmental and non-governmental agencies, include research and development for technologies used in desalination or water purification, hydroelectric power generation, water infrastructure, and water conservation. Because water, a critical resource for human societies, is frequently not available in sufficient quantity or quality to satisfy its various demands, this research has broader applicability to society's needs.
