project leader mel hoffman


Hello! I am the Project Leader for the SCA Field School in Phoenix! I have worked for outdoor education programs across the country and this is my third season with the Field School. I’ve lived in nine states and traveled to ten countries and I now happily call Phoenix home (except in the summer, when I happily call Alaska, California, or Wyoming home!!). I like to run, backpack, travel, garden, knit, cook, make art, raise chickens, and most of all, look for wild burros in the Arizona desert. My favorite thing to do is teach people new skills in the backcountry!
