Southeastern Wildlife Exposition

The Southeastern Wildlife Exposition (SEWE) will host its 41st event in 2023 at multiple venues throughout downtown Charleston, February 17-19, with VIP events beginning Thursday, February 16.

Wings Over Water, a film co-produced by Ducks Unlimited and narrated by award-winning actor Michael Keaton, will showcase the importance of the Prairie Pothole Region of North America as a breeding and nesting habitat for birds.

Logistical improvements and venue changes include an amended exhibit layout at Brittlebank Park, additional VIP shuttles and expanded programming at the Charleston Marriott.
