Friends of Coastal South Carolina


The Friends of Coastal South Carolina (FCSC), formally known as the 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, FCSC agreed to expand their services to include Waccamaw NWR. FCSC 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.

FCSC 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.

In addition, FCSC 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 FCSC 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.
