I have worked with Julie and Karen at SEWEE Association for years and am fortunate to have a variety of excellent experiences to partner with them and observe their great work! SEWEE Association programming bridges the gap between classroom learning and real-world experiences for young people to see, touch and absorb the natural world. They provide core professional development for teachers to integrate experiential, environmental-based learning into the required state standards. With a small staff they manage to serve teachers and students in at least 3 different school districts with their Earth Stewards program and many, many more through their on-site programs. It is also important to note that staff at SEWEE are quick to work together to provide the highest quality programs through their facility and to the teachers that they work with. The partners that work with the SEWEE Association also speak to their high-quality of programming; SC Department of Natural Resources, Center for Ocean Sciences Education and Excellence, Environmental Education Association of SC, Earth Force and The Center for Birds of Prey just to name a few. We are fortunate to have the SEWEE Association working every day to shepherd our youth as well as the general public through the protected spaces that carry such value in our beautiful, lowcountry home. Thanks to them for tirelessly working to foster future generations of environmental stewards!
