All policy-level coordination is directed by the Board, and TCD exercises cooperating agency status as may be appropriate in coordination with both federal and state land management agencies. TCD participated as cooperating agency in projects like: the Upper Snake River Wild & Scenic Plan & Environmental Impact Statement, the Bridger Teton National Forest Teton to Snake Fuels Management Project, and the Shoshone National Forest Forest Plan Revision.
