The Barnes & Noble Bookfair will help the Lloyd Center in two ways. First, a percentage of Bookfair sales will underwrite the Center’s environmental science programs. Second, the Lloyd Center staff will be able to create a wish list of titles to enhance their library collection. Bookfair supporters may choose books from an in-store wish list display to purchase for the Center’s library.

Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and Graduation are just around the corner.  Please help support the Lloyd Center by shopping at Barnes & Noble in the Dartmouth Towne Center located at 392 State Road in Dartmouth on Saturday, March 21st by mentioning the Lloyd Center or shopping online at www.bn.com/bookfairs.  For more information, contact Lloyd Center Education/Outreach Director Liz Moniz at liz@lloydcenter.org, 508-990-0505 x15. 

ABOUT LLOYD CENTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT, INC.

The Lloyd Center for the Environment, a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization, founded in 1978 and situated with its headquarters and spectacular nature preserve overlooking the scenic Slocum River estuary, has achieved a well-earned reputation for excellence in environmental research and education. Through its innovative outreach programs, it has established itself as a highly regarded leader in the ongoing effort to raise awareness of the area’s fragile coastal resources and the importance of protecting them.

At its recently expanded 82-acre nature preserve, comprising pristine salt marsh, maritime forest and undisturbed wetlands, in one of the most unspoiled reaches of Dartmouth, the Visitor Center is open from 10am to 4pm, Tuesday through Saturday, and on Sundays, June – September, free of charge. There, aquarium exhibits offer unique views of live freshwater and saltwater species of fish and other marine critters.

The Center is also home to a fascinating collection of live local reptiles, amphibian & fish species. At the always popular touch-tank, youngsters learn the hands-on joy of socializing with gentle spider crabs, elusive minnows, sea stars (starfish), whelks, hermit crabs, periwinkles and mussels.

The top-floor Osprey Room Observatory, with its magnificent views of the Elizabeth Islands and Buzzards Bay, has been designated by the Massachusetts Executive Office of Environmental Affairs as one of the Commonwealth’s top-fifteen “Special Places”. Through telescopes there, one can get a close-up view of formerly endangered Ospreys, and their chicks, nesting on platforms erected by members of the Center’s research staff.
