Britton retired from the Texas Tech faculty in 2008. Prior to joining the Texas Tech faculty in 1980, Britton served as an associate professor with Oregon State University's Squaw Butte Experiment Station. He received his bachelor's and master's degrees in range management from Texas Tech. His doctorate in range science is from Texas A&M University.
Awards for Britton include Tech's College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources Teaching Award (2006); Range Science Education Council, Undergraduate Teaching Award (2004); Texas Tech President's Outstanding Achievement Award (2004); and Tech's Department of Range, Wildlife, & Fisheries Management Outstanding Alumni Award (2000).
The regional conference, titled "Fire Landscapes, Wildlife, and People: Building Alliances for Restoring Ecosystem Resilience," is hosted by the Association for Fire Ecology and Humboldt State University. Program officials said the association is an organization of professionals dedicated to improving the knowledge and use of fire in land management through science and education.
