Out and About with SINHG This Spring

Seabrook Island Natural History Group (SINHG) members have ventured far and wide these past two months during SINHG’s spring series of thirty-four learning adventures. Close to home at the beach, members met with marine geologist Leslie Sauter to discuss the dynamic nature of our three miles of coastline and the importance of periodic remodeling of Captain Sam’s Spit. A bit further afield downtown, members explored the heritage of Charleston’s famous Grimke Sisters, feminists and early nineteenth century abolitionists who fought for the eradication of slavery and women’s rights. Later in April, members communed with goats, hogs, mules, cows and chickens at The Goatery At Kiawah River to learn about the growing Community Sustainable Agriculture movement. SINHG spring trips continue through mid-May and will resume in September.
