By Norman Powers for The Island Connection
A private visit to the Charleston Harbor’s Morris Island Lighthouse, a walking tour of Boone Hall Plantation and a tour of the American Folk Art exhibit at the Gibbes Museum are among the new entries in the Seabrook Island Natural History Group’s schedule of spring expeditions for members. Nearly twenty per cent of the forty-eight expeditions offered are new, or are returning after a long absence. Also on the list of new opportunities is a tour of the Museum of Charleston’s newlyopened Bunting Gallery of Low Country Natural History, a guided tour of the Charles Pinckney National Historic Site in Mount Pleasant, and a morning at nearby Brickhouse Equestrian Center’s Charleston Area Therapeutic Riding (CATR), the area’s largest and oldest nationallyaccredited center offering equine therapy to special needs adults and children. Returning to the schedule are both of Doug Bostick’s “War On The Islands” expeditions rescheduled from the hurricane-plagued autumn, along with Alphonso Brown’s popular and educational Gullah Tour of the Lower Peninsula and a tour of Paul Fryar’s nationally famous topiary garden in Bishopville, South Carolina, led by Mr. Fryar himself. A complete schedule of spring expeditions for SINHG members, along with signup forms is available at sinhg.org.
