Ways to help

Butterfly Garden Upkeep

Do you have a green thumb, like digging in the dirt or just like to be outdoors? If so, the Lloyd Center has a wonderful opportunity for you to work with the beautiful plants and flowers of our butterfly garden. We are seeking a team of volunteers who will help to plant, weed and maintain the plantings of this garden throughout the summer. This garden provides an important stop over point for migrating Monarch butterflies as they make their way down to Mexico.

American Oystercatcher

Each year we monitor numbers of pairs and nesting success for territories we're able to locate. We suspect however, that pairs are also nesting on privately-owned waterfront areas, which are accessible only via nearby private property. This is where we need your help. Do you have AMOY nesting “in your backyard”? Anyone suspecting American Oystercatcher nesting activity on or near their property, and would either like to allow a site visit by qualified biologists, or provide documentation of the breeding activity, are urged to contact us.
