Few people are familiar with the full history that shaped and preserved the fish and wildlife of coastal South Carolina. From Native Americans to the early colonists to plantation owners and their slaves to market hunters and commercial fishermen, all viewed fish and wildlife as limitless.

Through time, however, overharvesting led to population declines, and the public demanded conservation. The process that produced fish and game laws, wardens and wildlife refuges was complex and often involved conflict, but synergy and cooperation ultimately produced one of the most extensive conservation systems on the East Coast.

This Moveable Feast is hosted by CLASS to benefit the Winyah Rivers Alliance (WRA) which monitors and maintains the health of the extensive river network in our region. In addition to profits from this Moveable Feast, proceeds from the sales of Luken’s book, plus William Woodson’s Waccamaw Gold and CLASS Publishing’s Sandy Island … forever will benefit WRA. Authors will be present to sign your books.

Acknowledgements – we are so grateful to both Dr. James Luken for agreeing to be part of this event and to Linda Ketron for her generosity in hosting this Moveable Feast to benefit Winyah Rivers Alliance.
