Every February, Charleston is alive with all sorts of raptors, wildlife, pets, wildlife art, and the people who are interested in them. The Southeastern Wildlife Expo is spread across the city, and visitors and residents can make their way around a series of booths, and see everything from gorilla rescue programs, to Boykin spaniel puppies, to fishing demonstrations, to birds in flight. Dewees Island is now prominently featured at a booth.
We are exhibiting for Dewees Real Estate, Dewees Rentals, and this blog.
We have a touch table with lots of Dewees treasures, and it gives us a chance to explain the three treasures-on-the-beach rule. We also have a great video of the island playing on an ipad (anchored to the wall) with clips of nature scenes and people enjoying the island.
We’ve been so thrilled with the responses from all of the people we have met, and really enjoy touching base with members of the Dewees family while we are down there. For those of you who stopped by, we can’t tell you how much we appreciate it. Anyone is welcome; we are in the conservation tent at Marion Square, on the King street side. Please stop by and say hello!
Now in its 29th year, the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition has grown to be the largest event of its kind in the nation, attracting over 500 artists and exhibitors from around the globe who present their offerings to over 40,000 attendees. A 3-day celebration of nature that has earned a reputation for excellence, SEWE now hosts the world’s foremost experts in wildlife and nature art, as well as conservation research and environmental education.
