Dana Renton


Dana Renton joined NFS in January 2021 as the Administrative Assistant and Membership Outreach Coordinator, and has since moved to the role of Communications. As a lifelong native Oregonian, she has been exploring the beautiful outdoors of the Pacific Northwest her whole life. Hiking, camping, fishing, rafting, and skiing have been her favorite hobbies for as long as she can remember.

Dana has her B.S. from Oregon State University with a degree in Environmental Science and a specialty in Aquatic Biology. After graduating, she was a biologist for an international seafood company working on promoting sustainable fisheries. She also had the pleasure of leading a high school study abroad program in the Caribbean, where she taught students marine ecology and conservation biology, along with how to SCUBA dive, a passion of hers.

She has spent the majority of the last decade fishing for wild steelhead, particularly in the Deschutes and Umpqua Basins, and in Southeast Alaska on Prince of Wales Island. Throughout that time she has gained a tremendous respect for the conservation of anadromous fisheries and their habitats. She cares about establishing and further aiding the protection of wild fish, free-flowing rivers, and helping others to do so as well alongside the NFS team and community.
