If you missed this year’s Music & Oysters for Wildlife at the SEWEE Outpost, you missed more than just some amazing local seafood. The tantalizing scent of barbecue and the upbeat strains of live music greeted people as they made their way under the heated tents for a relaxing afternoon of great Lowcountry food and entertainment. Many people marked their spot in front of the stage with folding chairs, but there was hardly a bad seat in the house, and cheers and enthusiastic applause erupted for Occasional Milkshake with Mark Bryan, Danielle Howle, and Doug Jones and Cravin' Melon.

While the live entertainment, delicious barbecue, and live auction were certainly a hit, it was the freshly steamed local oysters that drew the most attention. Warmly dressed guests eagerly vied for a place next to the hot oysters with knives in hand, and the tables were packed throughout the afternoon.

The event drew a large turnout of enthusiastic partygoers, and the comfortable, down-home atmosphere made for the perfect Sunday afternoon, well worth the drive to Awendaw.

Music & Oysters for Wildlife helped raise money for the South Eastern Wildlife and Environment Education (SEWEE) Association. The SEWEE Association works diligently as a Friend's Group for the National Wildlife Refuges and National Forest of coastal South Carolina, supporting their federal partners’ mission in biological, cultural and educational activities.
