Elizabeth Anderegg

A graduate of the College of Charleston, Elizabeth Anderegg is a lifelong canoeist who discovered kayaking when her two daughters grew older and preferred their boating independence. Since 2006, she has served as a kayak and birding expert for Nature Adventures Outfitters. Now an ACA Kayak Instructor and a South Carolina Master Naturalist, Elizabeth brings to Road Scholar her love of nature and the outdoors, and her love of sharing these with others.

Michael Smalls

Michael Smalls has been coiling native sweetgrass baskets since he was an eight-year-old boy, learning this rare craft at his great-grandmother's knee. His great-grandmother created baskets to sell in the Charleston Market; today, her great-grandson is an artist at the Hilton Head-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce's Welcome Center. Participants can watch Michael use his "nail bone" to push palmetto strips through sweetgrass to create his baskets, and talk with him about his art and its history.

Bill Hamel

Bill Hamel is an engineer by trade who became a volunteer by vocation. An instructor for the Oscher Lifelong Learning Institute at USC-Beaufort, Bill is a field naturalist who teaches a popular course on the ecology of the Lowcountry. In addition, he is a member of the “Pinckney Nine,” an award-winning team of volunteers at the Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge. Bill also loves to kayak, and leads students on adventures into swamps, marshes, or forests in pursuit of both flora and fauna.
