About The Presenter

Sam Brenkman

Sam Brenkman grew up in Madison, Wisconsin, and was introduced to streams and fishing at an early age by his grandfather. He began studies in biology and natural resource management at the University of Wisconsin, and later completed degrees at Oregon State University. His interest in the management and conservation of native fishes grew after spending years of adventure and work in the Blue Mountains, Klamath Basin, lower Columbia River, and coastal portions of Oregon and Washington. Sam’s interests in fisheries conservation peaked after traveling to study fish populations in remote portions of Iceland. Today, Sam and his co-workers at Olympic National Park work to manage 12 major watersheds, 31 freshwater fish species, and over 70 populations of Pacific salmonids throughout 922,000 acres of Olympic National Park.
