Palmetto Pride Executive Director Sarah Lyles talks from the trail

EDITORIAL NOTE: In this fourth of several short videos over the month of July, South Carolina leaders are briefly expounding on their experiences along the trail during the second annual SOUTH CAROLINA SEVEN (SC7) expedition.

The month-long SC7 expedition – primarily hiking, but also rafting, kayaking, and SCUBA diving – began in the Upstate, July 1, and will conclude in Charleston, July 30. Along the way, global expedition leader Tom Mullikin and other experts are showcasing the state’s seven geographic wonders explored and observed along a unique trek closely paralleling several hundred miles of the famed Palmetto Trail from the mountains to the sea.

In today’s “SC7 minute,” Palmetto Pride Executive Director Sarah Lyles discusses Palmetto Pride, its partnership with the SC7 expedition, and why education is key in litter prevention and changing behavior in terms of littering in South Carolina.
