Jorden

The great outdoors are in Henry Jorden’s blood. Having grown up along the Rocky Mountain Front in Choteau, Mont., he understands why saving the clean air and water of wild lands is vital. It’s a major reason why he joined Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness as Lincoln County outreach coordinator.

Henry will focus on engaging Lincoln County residents on wilderness issues. That means working with local partners and talking with the public about why wild places matter. Henry will put his passion for youth outdoor education to use as well. This winter, he will be coordinating FSPW’s Winter Tracks program in Lincoln County.

“I couldn’t be more excited to become a part of the Friends’ dedicated team and start working to save the wild Scotchmans,” Henry said. “It has been a pleasure getting to know the active and welcoming community here in Lincoln County.”

Henry graduated from Carroll College in 2016 with a bachelor’s degree in political science and international relations. Public lands and environmental policy was an emphasis in his studies, making him a great fit for work saving the wild Scotchmans. He also has experience in elections administration, forestry, wilderness therapy and outdoor education across Montana and Idaho.

In addition to his Scotchman Peaks work, Henry is a counselor at Boulder Creek Academy in Bonners Ferry. He resides in Troy, where his efforts are guided by the unique intersection of community engagement, outdoor education and mental health.
