Located on the Appalachian Plateau, New River Gorge National River offers a wide variety of habitats in its 53 miles of river and steep V-shaped gorge. Riparian areas, mixed hardwood forests, old fields, and high cliffs provide for an array of birds nesting or living year-round within the borders of the National River.
Park staff offers birdwalks throughout the spring and summer; check the Ranger Programs page for a program schedule.
