Operations, Women For Wild Fish
Tracy Buckner joined NFS in 2012 and quickly filled the role as Administrative and Development Coordinator, later becoming our Operations Manager, and Event Coordinator. Tracy co-founded the Women for Wild Fish initiative, which encourages and promotes women as leaders of science-based education, conservation, and wild fish advocacy.
A native Oregonian, Tracy has spent most of her life exploring the Pacific Northwest and seeking out the hidden gems of the area. Endless summer days fishing with her grandfather on the Deschutes and area lakes, as well as family trips to all corners of the Northwest helped shape her views on conservation and the need to preserve our natural resources. Tracy was fortunate enough to live abroad for 5 years and traveled extensively throughout Japan and the Far East. She has also spent time living in Arizona, Tennessee, and Connecticut - always searching for the road less traveled.
Tracy continues to foster her need for all things wild and free and gets out into the world at every opportunity. When they aren’t out rooting for their favorite footy club, Tracy and her husband, an avid hunter, flytyer, and artist, love to pack up their little teardrop and hit the road searching for adventure…and wild, native fish!
