Spring is one of the most exciting times of the year for birdwatching in SC, when many species of birds travel through on their journey north to breed.

Do You Know…? Neighborhood Electric Vehicles

Do you know… driving around Seabrook Island on a Neighborhood Electric Vehicle (NEV) requires a valid driver’s license?

SIPOA Rules and Regulations specifies that drivers must have a valid driver’s license to operate NEVs on island roads. An NEV is a Low-Speed Vehicle (LSV) that has a VIN number and a license plate like a car. An NEV is not a golf cart.

To read the SCDMV Low-Speed Vehicle Registration Requirements Information Sheet and obtain a copy of the online application for Low-Speed Vehicles, visit scdmvonline.com. Click on “Forms and Manuals” and search for Low Speed Vehicle.

  • All vehicles, including NEVs, must comply with SC motor vehicle laws, including seat belts, which everyone must wear. In addition, all NEVs operated after sunset and before daybreak must be equipped with proper lights and reflectors.
  • SIPOA requires that NEVs display a valid, barcoded entry device.
  • Motorcycles, motorized scooters, mopeds, go-carts, motorized skateboards or similar motorized vehicles are not permitted on Seabrook Island unless authorized by SIPOA for special purposes or events on a case-by-case basis.
  • Golf carts are not permitted on SIPOA roads, bicycle paths or boardwalks, except when crossing the road while playing golf.

These are taken from SIPOA Rules and Regulations, Section III. D. 1. e, f, g, h, j. and 2.

Property owners should share this information with visitors and rental guests. Our  Do You Know…? posts may be accessed at any time on the Tidelinewebsite. Click on the Do You Know drop-down menu at the top.

SIGC Announces April 9 Meeting – Milkweed & The Importance of Butterflies as Pollinators

The state of butterflies reflects the health of America’s grassland habitats and its pollinators, and they are in trouble. Monarchs in particular have seen an estimated 90% decline over the past two decades due to the loss of habitat, land development and the widespread spraying of weed killer. Find out how you can help by joining the Seabrook Island Garden Club’s Friday, April 9 Zoom meeting with Chris Burtt, Urban Horticulture Extension Agent & the Master Gardener Coordinator for three counties including Charleston. (cburtt@clemson.edu) There will be a short business meeting at 9:45 am and Chris will begin his presentation at 10:00.

Chris will discuss how native milkweed and other nectar sources are vital, providing butterflies with breeding habitat, resting and refueling way stations during migration and food at the overwintering sites. Supporting butterfly habitats also helps the environment. Like bees, butterflies are plant pollinators, and they provide population control for a number of plant and insect species by eating them.

Don’t miss this important final meeting of the year. We will send out a Zoom link before the April 9 meeting.

The ’20-21 Seabrook Island Garden Club is for anyone who has an active interest in horticulture and artistic design, community beautification, ecology and philanthropy. Access our blog at: https://sigardenclub.blogspot.com/
