Dartmouth resident Brodie MacGregor was honored by the Lloyd Center for the Environment on June 4 for his years of work for the center, where he has served as chair of both the board and campaign steering committee and helped lead the center’s capital campaign.

He was also described as someone who would frequently visit the offices, coffee cup in hand, “ready to roll up his sleeves and work,’’ said Rachel Stronach, executive director of the center. “He was always ready to jump into things.’’

His dedication to the center earned him the George G. Haydock award, which Stronach described as the center’s most prestigious honor.

The award, which is selected by the center staff and board of directors, is presented to someone who made an outstanding contribution in protecting the fragile nature of the coastal environment, according to a description provided by Stronach.

Stronach thanks MacGregor for his efforts at the center.

The honor bears the name of long-time Lloyd Center supporter and nature enthusiast, Dr. George G. Haydock, and is presented each year to an individual who reflects the spirit and passion that Haydock exemplified, Stronach said.

MacGregor was also active in the committee for the Slocum River Regatta and, along with his wife Maddy, volunteered for years at the center’s annual clambake.

An avid sailor, he is the former owner of Concordia Company in South Dartmouth.

The environment is a passion he said he shares with his wife, children and grandchildren.

“All of us as a family are enthusiastic about the environment and education,’’ he said. The center “fits what I’m all about.’’
