WLS 2022: Native Plants that Shaped Our History with Santino Lauricella (Feb. 27)

Sunday, February 27 2:00 pm
Sunday, February 27 3:00 pm


Santino Lauricella finds that plants as a group are generally overlooked by our society. With the exception of food, garden beauty or possibly building material, many don’t realize the deep connection we have with plants each and every day. In this program, we will examine the rich history of some of our native species and explore how each has shaped the world.

Santino Lauricella has served as the education coordinator for Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve since 2019. He is responsible for the Preserve’s educational programming, which helps visitors to be inspired by our natural world. Originally from central New York, he received his B.S. in wildlife management from the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry. An avid lover of the outdoors since his childhood spent just outside the Adirondack Park, he relishes all opportunities to share his passion for nature and science with others.
