Lloyd Center 33rd Annual New Year’s Day Beach Walk – Monday, January 1st, 2024

Looking for fresh air, exercise or to learn more about the natural world around you?  If so, this is the perfect trip for you!

Join Research Associate, Jamie Bogart, for the 33rd Annual Lloyd Center tradition and celebrate the New Year with a peaceful walk on Gooseberry Neck beach. Focusing on coastal ecology and bird identification, Jamie will identify winter waterfowl and ‘washed up’ marine life. January is a wonderful time of year to walk the coast and observe the effects of wave action on the slope and shape of the beach.

This is a very informal outing, and those that simply want to walk are more than welcome.

The Lloyd Center’s New Year’s Day Beach Walk will take place on New Year’s Day from 10 am – 12 noon. Participants are to meet at the Gooseberry Island parking lot at the end of East Beach Road in Westport, MA. Participants should dress warmly and wear hiking boots; binoculars and cameras are also recommended. 

If you have specific questions about the program, please call Jamie at 508-990-0505 x 23, or email jbogart@lloydcenter.org.

This annual event is free to the public. All ages are welcome.
