The Seabrook Island Natural History Group capped its 2018-2019 SINHG Trips season with a visit to Cypress Gardens, the 170-acre state park in Monck’s Corner recently reopened after restoration efforts from the devastating floods of 2015. Members took to the park’s lagoons and creeks to observe the abundant wildlife and spectacular scenery of this quintessential Lowcountry setting.
A few weeks later, 42 SINHG members embarked on the Pirate’s Lady to visit Deveaux Bank, the protected bird sanctuary across the water from North Beach. Nesting pelicans, herons, red knots, terns and skimmers were in abundance, along with loggerhead turtles and dolphins cavorting offshore. (Thanks to Glenn Cox for sharing his photos!)
The 2019/2020 season of SINHG Trips for members will begin the fall. New memberships are available by visiting sinhg.org/membership.
