This autumn’s schedule of Seabrook Island Natural History Group (SINHG) Trips for members is taking a Thanksgiving break before embarking on the last stretch of this season’s trips to finish out the year.
During late October and November, members traveled downtown to learn about the close ties between Charleston and the West Indies, especially Barbados, whose culture and architecture is reflected in much of downtown.
The Holy City’s noted culinary traditions were celebrated by SINHG members during a tour and sampling of four restaurants surrounding Upper King Street.
Weather buffs enjoyed visiting with Channel 2’s weather guru Rob Fowler, who guided members on a tour of the station’s studio and production facilities.
And a score of SINHG members cut loose at The Woodruff for an evening of Music Bingo, which happened to coincide with Halloween and inspired many members’ costume talents.
SINHG trips will continue through mid-December. The schedule of spring 2024 trips is nearly complete and will be released soon.
The Seabrook Island Natural History Group is one of the island’s oldest and largest special interest groups dedicated to exploring the ecology, history and culture of the Carolina Lowcounty. To find out more, go to sinhg.org.
