SINHG on the Water

This Bald Eagle kept an eye on SINHG members during a recent SINHG trip to Stumphole Swamp near Lake Marion. Snowy Egrets, too, looked on as members learned about the origins of Lake Marion during two hours on the water with Fisheagle Wildlife Tours.

Earlier this month, SINHG Trips took members out into Charleston Harbor for a visit to the Morris Island Lighthouse with Dr. Stephen Wise whose best-seller “Gate Of Hell: The Campaign For Charleston Harbor’ is essential reading for Civil War historians. Members enjoyed a walk along the beach while learning about Union troops’ efforts to capture the island to counter Ft. Sumter’s Confederate-held cannons.
