Henry brings to RSC a rich background in environmental education and a passion for fostering sustainable communities. With a Bachelor's degree in Environmental Studies from Macalester College and a master's degree in Natural Sciences and Environmental Education from Hamline University, Henry has honed his expertise in the field, combining a strong academic foundation with hands-on experience teaching all ages.

Originally from Madison, Wisconsin, Henry spent the last six years loving rural life in beautiful and historic Lanesboro, Minnesota.

Now working from a new home in Mineral Point, Wisconsin, connect with Henry as he drinks good coffee, attempts to negotiate which cat gets the primary lap spot, and works passionately for the advancement of rural educators everywhere.
