SEWEE Association, Inc.


The South Eastern Wildlife and Environment Education Association, Inc., SEWEE Association, is a non-profit Friends Group formed in 1996 to support the missions of several local South Carolina federal agencies within the U. S. Fish & Wildlife Service and the National Forest Service. In 2002, the Association agreed to expand their services to include Waccamaw NWR. The Association is a major partner for Waccamaw NWR as it supports biological projects and internships, provides funding for interpretive exhibits and activities, and delivers innovative, hands-on environmental education programming.

The SEWEE Association has been significant to the creation, expansion and management of the Sewee Earth Stewards program. Based on the U.S. Fish and Widlife Earth Stewards framework, the cross-curriculum conservation education program focuses on freshwater wetlands, salt marsh and barrier island habitats for fifth and seventh-grade students. Since its beginnings in 1999 at two schools, the program has grown to 13 schools in the 2009-2010 school year.

In addition, the SEWEE Association, Inc. also runs a gift shop called The Trading Post located in our Visitor Center to help support programs & projects here at Waccamaw NWR.

For more information on the Association and their projects at Waccamaw NWR and the other refuges in the South Carolina Lowcountry Refuges Complex, or to become a member, visit their web site.
