Serino, Associate Professor of Biology at Misericordia University.

Concerned with the complexity of the issue of today’s climate conditions and growing confusion about its effects on natural resource conservation, Dr. Serino has developed a program that will introduce the science of this phenomenon in basic and understandable language.

The program, free and open to the public, is co-sponsored by the Gifford Pinchot Audubon Society and the Grey Towers Heritage Association, with support from the US Forest Service. Light refreshments will follow and participants will have an opportunity to speak with Dr. Serino during the reception.

Dr. Serino is the Director of the Clinical Laboratory Science (Medical Technology) Program at MU, and maintains affiliation agreements with several Clinical Laboratory Science centers throughout Pennsylvania and serves as the Pre-medicine Director for the University. In addition, Dr. Serino received a Strategic Initiative Grant in 2002 to found and direct the Science Education Enhancement Program (SEEP). This active outreach program provides elementary and secondary teachers with demonstrations and hands-on activities at their schools or as field trips to MU laboratories to encourage and promote active learning of basic science. The SEEP program interacts with more than 1000 young students a year at more than 10 school districts in NE Pennsylvania.

This lecture is the third in a series of 5 lectures provided at no charge by the Grey Towers Heritage Association and the US Forest Service. For information on the remaining lectures and other programs and events at Grey Towers please visit or call 570-296-9625.
