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.
