People of the Portland District
Doug Garletts, Willamette Valley Project fisheries biologist, has worked for the District for about 16 years. Garletts enjoys the region, the people, the geography, the politics, and the challenges of coordinating with many folks representing many stakeholder groups. He says something that would surprise people about his job is, "working in cold and wet environments for long hours can be safe and fun for those who are well prepared!!"
