Each year, the position of OISC Chair rotates between ex-officio members of the Council. This year, the OISC welcomed its 2018 Council Chair, Glenn Dolphin, from the Oregon State Marine Board.
Glenn is the Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) Program Coordinator for the State Marine Board and has been with the agency for 11 years. He oversees and coordinates with program partners that the statewide AIS Prevention Program charged with protecting Oregon against the invasion of new aquatic species and managing existing populations to prevent their spread to new waterbodies.
Glenn came to the Marine Board after working for the Marion Soil and Water Conservation District for five years. While at the District, Glenn became a certified USDA Conservation Farm Planner and a certified Professional in Erosion and Sediment Control by the International Erosion Control Association. He primarily worked with private landowners in Marion County to provide technical environmental planning assistance to help solve environmental concerns and to design restoration projects. He moved to Oregon 19 years ago, after graduating from college with his Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science with a water quality focus from the State University in New York at Plattsburgh. He is an outdoor recreation enthusiast and enjoys hiking, biking, skiing, boating and camping.
