SC Expedition - Edisto River

Global expedition leader and South Carolina Floodwater Commission chair Tom Mullikin is leading an expedition in South Carolina to showcase the state’s natural beauty and to highlight the environmental threats due to storms and flooding in the most vulnerable areas of the state.

Dubbed the South Carolina Seven, the month-long expedition will begin in the northern part of the state on July 1 and will conclude at the South Carolina Aquarium in Charleston on July 30.

The journey will be physical for those participating, but will also be shared virtually for those in nursing and assisted-living facilities to participate in real time.

This will be for everyone,” says Mullikin in a statement. “It will also be something of a record-setting expedition, not so much in terms of the time it takes for us to complete it, but in terms of the magnificent destinations across South Carolina that we will enjoy along the way.”

An energy-environmental attorney and university professor, Mullikin is a former Army officer and retired commanding general of the S.C. State Guard who has spent much of the last four decades exploring the planet, logging scuba dives in all the world’s oceans along the way.

“A proven world-class expedition leader and South Carolina enthusiast, Tom Mullikin is creating quite the buzz with his upcoming July expedition,” said the state’s Lt. Gov. Pamela Evette. “I’m really looking forward to following his journey and hope to see you all for one of his fireside chats along the way.”

Expedition partners include the state Department of Natural Resources; the Floodwater Commission; the Department of Parks, Recreation, and Tourism; the Association of the U.S. Army’s Palmetto State Chapter; the South Carolina National Heritage Corridor; Yamaha Rightwaters; the Cape Romain Natural Wildlife Refuge; and the Edgar Dyer Institute for Leadership and Public Policy at Coastal Carolina University.
