Become a Lloyd Center Member or Renew Your Membership Today!The Lloyd Center for the Environment is a local treasure with an exceptional estuary on the Slocum River, breath-taking views, and over five miles of unique hiking trails. Your membership support allows us to offer access to our grounds and future exhibits at no charge to the public. We are asking you to join or renew your membership to the Lloyd Center at the highest level possible.
All members will receive preferred entry to our Music in the Woods event, free of charge. Visit the Center in the fall for an extraordinary live, musical experience along the trails.
While the Lloyd Center animal exhibits are currently closed, your generous gift helps feed our fresh & saltwater fish and turtles - everything from algae wafers to crickets, shrimp, vegetables, and various worms. Summer program students benefit from these critters in their Bond Building classroom studies.
Your contribution also allows Lloyd Center educators to offer outdoor seasonal activity stations and our StoryWalk® on the Center’s trails. Right now, schools are busily lining up our Feathery Focus, Erosion, and other virtual/in-person classes.
Stay tuned for Clambake XXXVII - Celebrating Science & Education! as we partner with local restaurants again. But for now, please renew your membership support, or join the Center, for another year of protecting and preserving local nature!

The Lloyd Center serves individuals, agencies, and organizations in southeastern New England – Rhode Island to Boston to Cape Cod. It is the only area organization focused on educating the public about coastal and watershed issues, and conducting research on coastal ecosystems and endangered species.
The Center cooperates on a broader level in coastal, environmental, and educational programming throughout New England, nationally and internationally.
Our school-based activities further expand our reach to urban audiences. A scholarship program also provides space for ten urban New Bedford students in our Summer Program.
