Sierra Henries

Sierra (she/her) has been an artist and a naturalist since birth, when she was named “Sierra Autumn” for the mountains and the season of tree splendor here in the Northeast, where she has lived for her whole life. Born in Nipmuc territory down in Rhode Island, Sierra and her family left the land of their Nipmuc people and ancestors and moved to Maine when Sierra was a baby, and she has been watching birds, identifying whales, and making art here on the coast ever since. Sierra exemplifies awareness, generosity, patience, and skill in her interactions with people and place, and we are lucky to have her join us as a regular instructor of bird language… as well as everything from bark peeling to campfire cooking! Check out her amazing birch bark pyrography work and please support her Native artistry!
