The SEWEE Association is a partner environmental education non-profit that work with Lowcountry Earth Force on service learning projects that benefit our National Forest and National Wildlife Refuges. Earth Force provides teachers with the expertise to help their students execute projects such as reducing the amount of plastic bags used by selling cloth grocery bag. This limits the number of plastic bags littered into the environment which harm the threatened Loggerhead sea turtle. Cape Romain Refuge works hard to protect sea turtle nests on the beaches and now the students work to protect the sea turtles once they are in the ocean. This partnership is mutually beneficial to us at the Sewee Center.
