On November 2nd, Aransas NWR was visited by Carl, Amelia, and Carla Knobloch, and Ernest Cook of the Knobloch Family Foundation, along with David Hougton and Anne Truslow of the National Wildlife Refuge Association. Refuge staff greeted the visitors & took them on a boat tour of whooping crane habitat. They returned to headquarters for lunch and an opportunity to learn more about the refuge and FAMI. Fred Lanoue, Linda Lanoue, and Irma Schreiner represented FAMI, and Fred did a short presentation on our organization.
The Knobloch Family foundation is a charitable organization registered in Houston, TX, which was founded in 1997. Earlier this year, the Foundation contributed $2 million to support the acquisition of the Powderhorn Ranch property.
