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.

Annual Appeal 2017

We are writing today to ask for your support of the Lloyd Center for the Environment’s 2017 Annual Fund. Our goal is to raise $125,000, 10% more than last year, to support the critical research, education and outreach programs the Lloyd Center provides to our community. The Annual Fund is a critical piece of our operating budget. For the Center to continue to provide the full complement of programs throughout Massachusetts and Rhode Island we rely on your assistance and generosity.

Your donation will support experiences like this:

“Visiting the Center was more than a day out of school for many of my students. They were able to apply what they learned in biology class and they also learned about their local habitat.” -High School Teacher
