This Week’s LRCC Guide: 

Hello! My name is Macie Flammia and I’ll be your guide for this night hike. I’m from Derry, NH and recently graduated from Keene State College with a degree in biology. As a New Hampshire native who grew up with long nights, I’ve grown to love experiencing the forest at night and getting great views of the starry sky. I look forward to hiking and looking at constellations with you!
