Psyched for a summer on the water!!!

Hey everybody!

My name is Luke Briccetti and I am sooooo excited to be an STH Team Leader for the summer of 2020! While I am originally from the New York area, I just graduated from Tufts University in Somerville and definitely consider Somerville to be my adopted home. 

I have been passionate about enjoying, exploring, and working on the water for as long as I can remember. This passion mainly stems from my love of fishing and marine science, which I hope to eventually pursue in graduate school. I have also spent a lot of time doing environmental education, and am excited to make fun educational videos for our program partners all summer long! I am also pumped to get to know my team better and to explore the harbor's sites with them!

Another thing I am excited about is getting to know Boston's waterfront this summer. As someone who didn't grow up in Boston, most of our summer sites are super new to me. I love urban beaches and working to conserve urban waterways, so I can't wait to learn more about how Boston achieved it's status as having some of the cleanest urban waterfront in the country (as well as the ways we can maintain it). 

Overall, I have had a ton of fun throughout orientation and the first week of programming at Save the Harbor. My favorite part so far was simply showing up at Carson Beach on the first in-person day - after being cooped up all spring due to Covid-19, it was awesome to be out on the beach, and awesome to see all the smiling, masked-up STH staff member's faces ready to tackle the Covid summer! 

Thanks for reading and see ya on the sand,
