Welcome, Kyle McGrath!

Kyle developed a passion for the outdoors through Scouting in his youth and became a frequent visitor to the Fells shortly after he moved to Cambridge in 2011. He joined the Friends of the Fells as a Trail Adopter in 2017. He enjoys cleaning up trash and invasive plants, as well as learning about and sharing local history.

“I love that there are so many ways to enjoy the Fells— on the trail I meet hikers, bikers, dog walkers, birders, rock climbers, fishermen, and more.”

In addition to being a Trail Adopter, Kyle often leads hikes around the 90mm site in Lawrence Woods to discuss what was once an anti-aircraft artillery defense site that was built during the Korean War. Kyle graduated with his B.A. in Anthropology and English Literature from St. Mary’s College of Maryland in 2011 and currently works as an IT analyst at the Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research in Cambridge.

“I’m excited to be on the board because the Friends of the Fells has such an important role to play in protecting the Fells and making sure it continues to be a place that everybody can enjoy.”

Please join us in welcoming Kyle!
