The Sewee Association is the friends group for Cape Romain, Waccamaw and Ernest F. Hollings ACE Basin National Wildlife Refuges and the Francis Marion National Forest. It supports critical biological and research projects for its partners, including loggerhead sea turtle recovery efforts, shorebird monitoring and invasive species control. The association conducts environmental education programs which connect thousands of kids with the incredible resources on the refuges and forest. Students in its programs build their math and science skills while learning about the unique coastal ecosystems. The association’s ground breaking work in environmental education has become a model for many other programs.
