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.

The Lloyd Center’s Visitor Center is currently closed to the public for the first phase of renovations to the main building.
Please enjoy our trails, open dawn to dusk, seven days/week.

Annual Membership Drive

Dear Friend,

We are writing today to ask you to join the Lloyd Center as a member.

Membership support is essential to the Center’s operations. Due to the generosity of our members last year, the Lloyd Center was able to provide:
• experiential environmental education to over 13,000 students;
• outreach programs ranging from owl prowls to canoe trips for over 3,000 individuals;
• monitoring of threatened and endangered species throughout the state.

There are some big changes underway at the Lloyd Center. Our innovative new Welcome Center is under construction, and the Visitor Center is currently closed while undergoing a renovation! During these important projects, the trails remain open and our outreach offerings for all ages continue.

You may join or renew your membership – HERE

Thank you for your support.

Rachel Stronach (Executive Director)
