Lynn Burditt grew up in the academically-charged Oak Ridge, Tennessee, community, went on for a MS in Forest Engineering at OSU, and worked for the US Forest Service in Montana before being recruited by Willamette National Forest Supervisor Mike Kerrick into the District Ranger position at Blue River Ranger District, home of Andrews Forest. She was in the Ranger position during the height of the “Forest Wars” (early 1990s) when a constant stream of field trips brought both regular and influential folks to the Andrews and Blue River District for public discussion of the future of public lands forests. She was a strong leader of the research-management partnership activities, including innovative silviculture and landscape management studies, and continued to connect with the Andrews Forest community after she departed for other Forest Service leadership positions in Oregon and Washington.
