Members of the Seabrook Island Natural History Group (SINHG) have been traveling far and wide this fall with the group’s autumn series of SINHG Trips.
In September there were three different trips. On one of the trips, members learned about the role indigo has played in Lowcountry culture while making their own indigo dyes to create wearable accessories. Another trip took members to the water to explore Charleston Harbor and the Intracoastal Waterway, the eastern seaboard’s network of canals, rivers, and channels that stretch all the way from Virginia to the Florida Keys. On the last trip, members were given a private, behind-the-scenes tour of the South Carolina Aquarium, visiting the top of the Aquarium’s famous 45-foot-deep tank where volunteer divers maintain the quality and cleanliness of the tank and its inhabitants.
SINHG Member Trips will continue through mid-November, with a new schedule of trips for Spring 2024 to be released soon. To learn about SINHG membership, visit sinhg.org.
