What do I do if I find bones in the woods?
If you find bones in the woods or elsewhere, please contact local law enforcement or our office. Law enforcement will contact the Klickitat County Coroner's Office if necessary, and we will determine the nature of the remains (human or animal, ancient or modern, etc.).
