Lloyd Center awarded conservation commendation

Aug 6, 2019

The Garden Club of America has awarded Dartmouth’s Lloyd Center for the Environment with a Club Conservation Commendation for its work in encouraging appreciation of coastal areas, providing environmental education and inspiring future generations to manage and conserve natural resources.

This citation was given to the Lloyd Center after a recommendation by the Garden Club of Buzzards Bay.

The non-profit Garden Club of America was founded in 1913 with an aim to inspire knowledge and love of gardening and to restore and protect the environment through educational and conservation programs.

One of the club’s priorities is to recognize members and non-members whose efforts further their mission.

The Lloyd Center for the Environment is a non-profit conservation organization headquartered on Potomska Road in South Dartmouth overlooking the Slocum River. Its educational programs have taught elementary school students in the South Coast area about coastal resources, science, and conservation since 2006.
