This Week's LRCC Guides:
My name is Alex Reiber and I'm from St. Clair Shores, Michigan. I am a recent graduate of Wayne State University in Detroit where I studied Environmental Science and minored in Geology. I love being outside and in my free time enjoy hiking, camping, mountain biking, and kayaking.
My name is Stevie Raymond and I am from Claremont, New Hampshire. I attended the University of Vermont where I majored in Environmental Studies and minored in Wildlife Biology. I've been with the Squam Lakes Association for the last three summers working as a conservation intern in 2016 and a recreation assistant in both 2017 and 2018. I enjoy watching movies, anything Star Wars or Christopher Nolan, as well as attempting to write my own films. Other than that, I dabble in standup comedy and improv.
