The Lloyd Center for the Environment is found down a long, wooded road in Dartmouth, Massachusetts. The center has a small natural history museum, observation deck, and several walking trails that meander through oak hickory forest, freshwater wetlands, salt marsh, and estuary. We arrived very late on a winter afternoon and browsed through the indoor exhibits as the warm rays of the setting sun shone brightly on the taxidermy and aquariums. The trails offer beautiful vistas of the islands and scenery of Buzzard’s Bay. It’s a great spot to take the dog for a (leashed) walk, birdwatch, and learn about local species and coastal processes.
