A native of San Antonio, TX, Henry fell in love with nature as a child at summer camp and on family camping trips. Henry believes that all people need to be connected to nature and that all children deserve opportunities for imaginative, exploratory, nature-based play. After many summers as a camp counselor and then assistant director, Henry earned a masters degree in education and taught 2nd grade. He co-founded and directed Friendship Gardens, a non profit project that grows food for meals-on-wheels in Charlotte, NC before moving back to Texas to serve the Nature Discovery Center. He is a husband, father, educator, adventure play advocate, garden nerd, and composter.
