We have brought our young children (6 and 2yo) to the Lloyd Center many times throughout their lives and it never gets old. The hiking trails offer transitions from deciduous forest to a rocky coast. The indoor terrariums and aquariums have a nice variety of local plants and animals, along with educational information to encourage learning. There are huge binoculars on the top floor to look out at osprey nests and other wildlife across the marsh. And the staff are extremely helpful and encourage questions from kids. One of the best kid bday parties I've ever attended was here: they brought the kids (4-6yo) to the shore with nets to capture shrimp and crabs and snails, all the while teaching the kids about the wildlife they were observing and touching, and then brought it all back to their large "touch tank" so that every child could watch and interact with the wildlife even more. I'm certain the adults had as much fun as the kids! The staff also provide butterfly catching tours and many other educational and fun outdoor activities for field trips, depending on the season.
