Southern Oregon Coordinator
Kirk Blaine joined NFS in March of 2020 as the Southern Oregon Regional Coordinator. Fairly new to the Pacific Northwest and Southern Oregon, Kirk made his way to the Native Fish Society working through community work focused on health and well-being in the Umpqua Valley. Previously, he was the Project Manager for Blue Zones Project Umpqua focused on transforming the community to live a healthier, happier lifestyle.
Born and raised in Wyoming, Kirk graduated from the University of Montana in Missoula with a B.S. in Business Administration focused on Marketing and Management. After school, Kirk moved to Colorado where he managed a private forest for diversification and regeneration of forest species. Kirk and his wife moved to Roseburg, Oregon in the spring of 2015 pursuing new careers to positively impact their community.
Outside of work, Kirk and his wife enjoy everything outdoors—skiing, rafting, hunting, fly fishing, and hiking. Kirk is excited to help conserve and protect wild places and wild fish for future generations to cherish and enjoy.
