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.

Even in a tumultuous 2020, the Lloyd Center’s staff served 5,000 students with socially-distanced Summer Programs, After School Programs, and Zooming into local classrooms with their environmental programming.
