Rowan Macy is a recent graduate of Pomona College in Claremont, CA. A biology major and an English minor, they are passionate about conservation and helping people connect with nature. They also care deeply about the synthesis of scientific research and data analysis with traditional ecological knowledge and community input.
Born and raised in Peterborough, NH, Rowan researched mycorrhizal fungi and old-growth forests for their thesis. They spent their summer in the White Mountains with the Appalachian Mountain Club, improving trail accessibility and sustainability. In their free time, they enjoy hiking, cooking, swimming, and crafting.
They are excited to return to New Hampshire to tromp through familiar forests as a conservation easement monitor with the Harris Center’s land protection and stewardship program.
