Native Fish Society Board of Directors Welcomes Jodi Wilmoth
The Native Fish Society Board of Directors is proud to welcome its newest member Jodi Wilmoth. Jodi works in Environmental Consulting with a varied list of stake holders including private businesses and public entities as well as local, state and federal agencies. Jodi was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest and graduated from Pacific Lutheran University with a B.S. in Biology with an emphasis in molecular biology. Jodi has had a varied career, working in research at the University of Washington and various biotech companies then as a boat captain and fishing guide in Alaska for 10 years.
Jodi is an avid fly fisherwoman, having fished many of the large and small rivers in the Pacific Northwest for that fish of 1000 casts. She is also an ardent conservationist, focusing specifically on the preservation of native species and the removal of invasive species. Her current projects include eDNA collection to locate remnant populations of bull trout in Central Oregon and bullfrog removal in the upper Deschutes basin to aid in the recovery of Oregon Spotted Frog.
Jodi has been participating as a volunteer River Steward for the Little Deschutes and in our Women for Wild Fish community since 2018. We at Native Fish Society are so thankful for Jodi's many years of work on behalf of her central Oregon homewaters and are honored to have her serve on our board of directors!
