McClellanville school turns students into environmental stewards.

McCLELLANVILLE — These kids aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty.

At Cape Romain Environmental Education Charter School, there’s no shortage of opportunities for students to learn via real-life outdoor science explorations.

Whether on kayaking trips to clean up a nearby river, maintaining an organic garden or tending to the chickens, goats, pigs and sheep that live on campus, students use the school’s outdoor surroundings as their personal classroom.
