It’s time to mark your calendar and secure your ticket to one of the summer’s most popular events, the Lloyd Center for the Environment’s Clambake XXXVI – “36 Years of Celebrating Science and Education!” – Friday, July 9, 2021.

Known as the unofficial “kick-off” of the South Coast’s summer season, Clambake XXXVI will take place on Friday, July 9, with our Silent Auction online, commencing on July 1, and three delicious take-home meal options. We are excited about partnering with several local restaurants!

If you would like to donate an item to our exciting Silent Auction, click here for more details or contact Nina or JoAnn at clambake@lloydcenter.org.

A tradition upon which so much depends, the Clambake helps to underwrite the costs of the Lloyd Center’s critically important environmental education, research, and outreach programs. Today, the Lloyd Center is working hard to bring first-rate environmental science classes to thousands of deserving children in our area’s public schools.
