The Sea Pines Shell Ring Educational Materials

The Sea Pines Forest Preserve Foundation is happy to announce that through a grant from the Town of Hilton Head Island Accommodations Tax (ATAX) program, updated educational panels have been installed at the Sea Pines Shell Ring.Each panel contains historical and educational information along with a QR code to view a video for more information.

Most of what we know about the Sea Pines Shell Ring comes from research conducted by Binghamton University (New York) between 20015-2019.

The Sea Pines Shell Ring was first established 4,800 years ago and is listed on the National Register of Historical Places. It is 1 of approximately 50 currently known to exist and is one of the best preserved. Click here to learn more and view the digital panels.
