The Seabrook Island Natural History Group announces a new season of forty-eight SINHG Trips from February to May, nearly twenty percent of which are new or returning after a long absence.
New expeditions for the 2018 winter/spring schedule include a ferry ride to pristine Dewees Island, a walking tour of Boone Hall Plantation, a guided tour of the Charles Pinckney National Historic Site in Mount Pleasant, and a visit to the Morris Island Lighthouse in Charleston Harbor. Closer to home is a visit to Charleston Area Therapeutic Riding (CATR) at nearby Brickhouse Equestrian Center, where specially trained horses and volunteers help special needs adults and children enjoy the benefits of horseback riding.
Also on the schedule are longtime favorite expeditions, including two “War On The Islands” trips led by historian Doug Bostick, exploring the Revolutionary and Civil War history of Johns and James Islands. Alphonso Brown will lead a special Gullah tour of the Lower Peninsula for SINHG members, and nationally-recognized topiary artist Pearl Fryar, the subject of the 2006 documentary “A Man Named Pearl”, will personally lead a tour of his famed garden in Bishopville, South Carolina.
SINHG membership is required to participate in each season’s trip offerings. Membership forms and a complete list of winter/spring trips for 2018 can be found at sinhg.org. The deadline for trip signup is December 29th.
