Sewee Association

The South Eastern Wildlife and Environment Education Association (SEWEE Association) is the Friend’s Group for the National Wildlife Refuges and National Forest of coastal South Carolina.

We work with our federal partners to achieve their mission in biological, cultural and educational activities. We have supported the Endangered Red Wolf and the Loggerhead Sea Turtle Nesting projects of Cape Romain NWR for over 10 years. We have helped Ernest F. Hollings ACE Basin NWR create a new public use area on the Combahee unit of the refuge. And we have worked with Waccamaw NWR as they develop places for visitors both in Georgetown and Horry counties.


We offer many lessons at the Sewee Visitor & Environmental Education Center in Awendaw and the Waccamaw Environmental Education Center in Georgetown on Freshwater Wetlands, Forests, Ecosystems, Endangered Species, Salt Marsh Ecology and animals found within the Coastal Plain of South Carolina. These lessons are designed for the one-day visit and are available for grades K-12.
