Family Fun Day at Coastal Discovery Museum will give families an opportunity to see what the Coastal Discovery Museum at Honey Horn has to offer. On your own you will be able to see the Museum’s boardwalk exhibits, learn about our salt marsh, explore the Replica Shell Ring and see what sort of shells, animal bones, and more- are hidden in the replica Shell Ring.
11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Aug. 1 at The Coastal Discovery Museum at Honey Horn.
You will have the opportunity to visit the horse barn and pasture to see our marsh tackies “Tadpole” and “Honey Horn May” and then learn about archeology with our Camp Dig-It demonstration with hands-on activities with actual artifacts! A visit to the Karen Wertheimer Butterfly Enclosure will let you see the life cycle of various butterflies we have here on Hilton Head Island. Visitors will also have the opportunity to throw a cast net, pull up the crab trap, tour the Heritage Garden and see what rice, cotton, Indigo and other crops look like. Bird watching and fiddler crab activity is where the action is from any of the 3 boardwalks visitors may visit. During the day in the Kid’s Zone, children will have an opportunity to try on Colonial clothing, play with Colonial toys and games, take a scavenger hunt on the pained mural wall and learn about shells, turtle bones and many other items found on our island thanks to the sponsorship of The Bargain Box. A large library of children’s books on history and natural history fill the shelves and stories will be read all day. The Hilton Head Regional Health Care Temporary Exhibit Gallery will feature “Wading and Diving – Birds in the Lowcountry Salt Marsh” which focuses upon the life of birds in the Salt Marsh.
