The Seabrook Island Natural History Group has announced six annual education grants to fund spring field trips for students at Haut Gap Middle School and Mt. Zion Elementary, for birding studies at St. John’s High School and for a gardening project at Haut Gap. The grants, totaling nearly $2,700, will provide materials and transportation for trips focusing on geology, history, marine mammals, birding and agriculture, with visits to sites as close by as Camp St. Christopher and as far away as Exploration Hannon in the Blue Ridge mountains.
The grant process was administered by SINHG Board member Rich Siegel. “These grants are an important part of SINHG’s mission to further learning about our ecology and history,” said SINHG president Julia Thogmartin. “We look forward to offering similar grant opportunities during the 2020/2021 school year.”
