In conjunction with the Lloyd Center for the Environment’s 2020 Annual Fund, the Lloyd Center has joined the #GivingTuesday movement. #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide.
Occurring this year on December 1, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the US), and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, to kick off the holiday giving season. #GivingTuesday hopefully inspires people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.
For thousands of South Coast students, the Lloyd Center has been their only source of in-classroom naturalist visits and on-site field trips, but like many other local organizations, our program has been hit hard by the COVID-19 closures. We’ve had to adapt to make sure that nature education doesn’t disappear from the lives of these children. Our education team swung into action, inventing teaching programs using Zoom and creating virtual field trips and presentations.

On behalf of the students, thank you!
