Deryn Wagner works on public lands projects, often at the intersection of land management, transportation, and decision-making. Since the early 2000s, she’s facilitated over 150 visioning sessions, focus groups, community working groups, public meetings, decision workshops, and retreats. With more than 15 years’ experience building consensus across disciplines such as land management, transportation, landscape architecture, and museum administration, she brings deep knowledge of the public and nonprofit sectors. Her public service culminated with her recent role as Planning and Design Supervisor for the City of Boulder’s Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP).
Deryn holds dual Master’s degrees in Planning and Landscape Architecture from the University of Colorado, Denver, and a Bachelor’s in Literature from the University of Virginia. She also has two young daughters (Magnolia and Sequoia), is married to a devoted Special Education teacher, and is deeply indebted to nature—not just for the food, water, and air it provides, but for the career she’s built protecting it and for the joy she and her family find in every pile of dirt.
