The Timber/Fish/Wildlife (TFW) Cultural Resources Roundtable (formerly the TFW Cultural Resources Committee) is established by the Forest Practices Board. The Roundtable fosters cooperative protection and management of cultural resources as envisioned in the Cultural Resource Protection and Management Plan (CRPMP). The Roundtable facilitates the identification, protection, and management of cultural resources that are significant to the history and cultures of the people of Washington State.
The Roundtable serves the needs of the Board by providing insight on cultural resources issues affecting forest practices located on the non-federal forest lands in Washington State, providing consensus rule making recommendations for the Board’s consideration, and annually reporting on behalf of the state Department of Natural Resources as to how implementation of the CRPMP is working (WAC 222-08-160(1)).
These TFW Cultural Resources Roundtable meetings are open to all interested persons who wish to attend. Starting in 2013, meetings are held quarterly with workshops between meetings as needed.
