New River Gorge National River to be designated NP&Pres as part of massive Covid relief bill

Included in the 5,593-page year-end spending package hammered out by Congress on Monday is legislation that would make a 7,000-acre section of the New River Gorge National River the nation’s 63rd national park.


The legislation would also redesignate the remaining 65,000 acres of Gorge land as the New River Gorge National Preserve, the 20th of its kind in the national parks system.
