Having spent the majority of her life on the east coast, Ada Fox decided it was time for a change and head for the west coast to join the PCT maintenance crew. She grew up in Massachusetts where a middle school field trip to an outdoor school in NH sparked her interest in the environment. From there, an SCA flyer hanging in her high school photography class introduced her to the joys of conservation and trail work. Her high school crew experience inspired her to further study environmental issues and so she headed to the Hudson Valley to study Environmental Science at Marist College. Ada’s studies became more research oriented observing the effects of different pollutants on the growth of plants. After graduation, she wasn’t ready for the graduate school route but was longing to be in the outdoors doing trail work. She saw this as the perfect opportunity to join the SCA again, meet new people, and explore the outdoors.
