Friday night at the Wildlife Expo brings the annual Ducks Unlimited oyster roast, where the East Cooper Chapter of DU brings together about 2000 revelers to raise money for the conservation of wetlands. A huge silent auction and a bounty of live auction items always ensure that funds for the ducks would be ample. The patrons enjoyed oysters, shrimp and grits, fried catfish and other Lowcountry tastes prepared by Jimmie Fitts catering. Their can be no forgetting that while SEWE celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2012, the conservation organization known for conserving wetlands is celebrating their own DU 75th anniversary. Another large crowd in attendance for the DU event helped to mark both milestones in sporting fashion.
