Britta Dyer oversees the planning, strategizing and implementation of American Forests’ Resilient Forests projects, partners, and programs across the country. She works closely with Regional Directors to expand the implementation of thoughtful, climate-smart restoration treatments across public and private lands with public and private funds. Britta has 15 years of experience in the forestry space specifically around conservation-based consensus building, strategic convening, coalition and collaboration development, and coaching for change. As a Social Scientist she aims to strike the balance between ramping up rapid restoration due to the urgent need for repair, and increasing intentional decision making to ensure that landscape-level forest restoration initiatives are strategically designed to minimize unintended consequences across ecosystems and society. An AmeriCorps VISTA alumni, Britta has a bachelor’s degree in communications/public relations, a master’s of natural resources from Oregon State University, an InnerMBA from NYU Mindful and Sounds True, and a Leadership Coaching Strategies Certificate from Harvard Division of Continuing Education. Originally from the D.C. area, she now works, lives, and plays in a small Sierra Nevada town in CA where, in her free time, she guides Yoga Backpacking Retreats throughout Yosemite National Park.
