To ensure that everyone can enjoy our coastal resources, the Lloyd Center charges no entrance fee to the building or grounds. We invite you to hike our trails, visit our exhibits, become a member, volunteer, and participate in our many education, research, and outreach programs.

$20,000 Grant Received

The Lloyd Center for the Environment received a financial boost with a $20,000 grant from the Massachusetts Environmental Trust (the Trust, MET). This funding will enable the Lloyd Center to expand and enhance their Climate Science Learning Project (CSLP), the Center’s interactive elementary school science teaching model.

“We are so grateful to MET for this grant support. The funding we receive from MET will go a long way to educate students and community members alike,” commented Lloyd Center Executive Director, Rachel Stronach.

According to Trust Program Director, Kim Tilas, the Trust will provide roughly $500,000 in grants to 15 organizations this year, thanks to motorists who choose to purchase one of the Trust’s specialty license plates.
