13th Annual Wild Side Recap

The 13th Annual Wild Side was held on Saturday, September 17 at the beautiful Kaminski House lawn in the heart of Georgetown.

Nearly 250 guests enjoyed an evening of live music from Columbia-based pop-folk duo Prettier Than Matt, delicious cuisine from Root, cocktails and a fabulous online auction.

This year's featured speaker, author Virginia Christian Beach, shared her insight and appreciation into the importance of protecting land, water and communities, and offered her own compelling, personal reasons for being an advocate for the Wild Side.

As the beautiful sun began to set across the river, Staff Attorneys Emily Nellermoe, Leslie Lenhardt and Ben Cunningham gave updates on some of their work, highlighting SCELP's strategic goals and mission of protecting land, water and communities across South Carolina.

Executive Director Amy Armstrong gave remarks on the 50th anniversary of the Clean Water Act, and SCELP's commitment to both clean water and environmental justice, which are two critical issues that are often intertwined.

It was a wonderful and meaningful occasion, and we are so grateful to the many businesses, organizations, volunteers, friends and family who have made this event possible and more successful year after year since 2010.
