The Timber/Fish/Wildlife (TFW) Cultural Resources Roundtable is chartered with the Forest Practices Board to provide insight on cultural resources issues affecting forest practices in Washington state, consensus-rule making recommendations, and annually report on behalf of the state Department of Natural Resources on implementation of the Cultural Resource Protection and Management Plan (WAC 222-08-160(1)).
