The Seabrook Island Natural History Group has released the schedule for its signature SINHG Trips for members for the New Year. Spring 2019 trips begin in February with a private tour of the South Carolina Historical Society Museum in Charleston’s recently renovated and landmarked “Fireproof Building”. The tour is one of 18 new trips among the 42 scheduled through April.
Other new offerings include an exploration of downtown’s Marine Research Center; a tour of the privately owned Dixie Plantation along the Stono River; and a trip to Columbia to tour the State House along with a first visit to the Columbia Museum of Art after its recent multi-million dollar renovation.
Popular trips returning for the spring include visiting the U.S. Coast Guard base in Charleston; historian Carol Ezell Gilson’s popular “Holy Moly” guided tour of downtown’s most famous and historic churches; and an eco-tour of Botany Bay aboard The Pirate Lady.
The signup deadline for spring trips is Dec. 14. To learn more about SINHG trips and to explore membership, visit SINHG.org
