The April Lectures at the Lagoon presentation, "Palm Beach County's Natural Areas: Preserving Our Wild Places, Source to Sea," will be given by Kylie Ariotti with Palm Beach County Department of Environmental Resources Management. Kylie is an Environmental Analyst - Public Outreach.
In this lecture, Kylie will discuss how Palm Beach County's 31,000 acres of Natural Areas are protected pieces of South Florida's natural heritage, and they are all open daily from sunrise to sunset. She will encourage attendees to discover how these magical spots came to be, as well as the diverse habitats that they work to preserve, protect and enhance. She will also discuss the many ways you can get out and connect with nature in the local Natural Areas.
About Kylie, in her own words:
"Growing up in South Florida created an intense passion for all things outdoors. Educating others on our natural resources and showing future generations, the importance of what is around us drives me daily. This intrinsic interest in caring for and understanding ecosystems keeps me outside more often than in and has led me to various career opportunities in the environmental field immersed in a multitude of hands-on jobs throughout various southern ecosystems. Now as a part of Palm Beach County Environmental Resources Management’s Public Outreach Team, it is with great excitement and commitment that I continue my journey to go out and give back to what I love."
