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.
The Department of the Interior, Office of Wildland Fire's overriding mission is to provide the strategic leadership and oversight that result in a safe, cohesive, efficient, and effective wildland fire program for the Nation. Fulfilling this mission requires close coordination with our governmental partners across the United States, including the Nation's American Indian and Alaskan Native tribal governments.
The Office of Widland Fire recognizes the sovereign authority of Tribal Governments and is committed to working in partnership with Indian tribes on a government-to-government basis. We believe that this partnership will yield improved policy outcomes. To acknowledge and honor the sovereignty of tribal nations, Office of Wildland Fire conducts regular and meaningful consultation and collaboration with federally recognized tribes on departmental action with tribal implications as related to the Department of the Interior's Wildland Fire Management.
The U.S. Department of the Interior places a high priority on respecting the government-to-government relationship between the federal government and the federally recognized American Indian and Alaska Native tribes.
