Lloyd Center For the Environment
The Lloyd Center is the only area organization focused on educating the public about coastal and watershed issues, and conducting research on coastal ecosystems and endangered species. The Lloyd Center serves individuals, agencies, and organizations in southeastern New England (Rhode Island to Boston to Cape Cod).
The Center cooperates on a broader level in coastal, environmental, and educational programming throughout New England, nationally and internationally.
The Center's school-based activities further expand their reach to urban audiences. A scholarship program also provides space for ten urban New Bedford students, mostly African-American and other minorities, in the Summer Program.

INTRODUCTION TO STAND-UP PADDLING
Instructors specialize in teaching people with no surfing or paddling experience at all. The only prerequisite is that you are comfortable in the water, and want to try something new! The two hour introduction session will take place in the calm waters of the Slocum River. Participants will be introduced to all the basics; getting familiar with equipment, water entry and balance, proper stance and positioning on the board, efficient paddling technique, safety and etiquette. Come out and give it a try… you’ll love it!
