Cultural Resources and Archaeology
on DNR-Managed state lands

We have a commitment—formalized in DNR policies and plans—to protect significant archeological sites and cultural resources on the more than 5 million acres of lands that we manage. We work with the Tribes throughout Washington State, as well as the public to identify and protect these resources while carrying out management activities. 

Recognition and Protection
DNR recognizes the importance of cultural properties, current cultural uses and historic and archaeological sites (cultural resources). Before conducting forest management activities on state lands, we check with the Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation to screen for known cultural sites. Additionally, the area of any proposed activity is screened for unknown sites, especially in high probability areas such as stream beds and hilltops.
