2014 SEWE begins at Mills House Hotel

With a fierce February ice storm causing havoc in the midlands and laying a foot of snow in the upstate, the Holy City of Charleston remained unscathed with temperatures staying above freezing. The Southeaster Wildlife Exposition kick off party went off as planned at The Mills House, but patrons realized that we were not at capacity because some visitors were not able to travel to join us. With an excellent weekend weather forecast ahead, we hope that everyone travels safely on their way to SEWE.  Local artists like Shannon Wood, Carol Segars and Amanda McLenon displayed their paintings at the Mills House while a guitar duo serenaded from 6 to 9. The wild game theme for dinner featured petite Carolina crab cakes, wild boar barbecue on cheddar biscuits, smoked duck sausage, and fried quail egg on chorizo crostini. Everyone utilized the special display of Landrum tables to eat dinner, and these tables are locally made by Capers Cauthen. The entire weekend of activities for outdoor enthusiasts, and for those who cherish wildlife art, is in its 32nd season and for full details visit SEWE.
