Rockport's Whooping Crane Strut will be Saturday, March 7th.  It will feature a 5 K run, a 10 K run, and a 2 mile walk. This year, $5 of each registration fee will be donated to our Water for Wildlife Fund. We will have an outreach table, and refuge staff will be there to talk with people


 about the importance of reliable fresh water sources for Whooping Cranes and other wildlife, answer questions about the cranes, and give out information about Aransas National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge whooping crane mascot will also make an appearance.


If you'd like to volunteer to help for a couple of hours during the race by staffing a drink station or pointing runners in the correct direction, email us your contact information. Volunteers will receive a race T-shirt.


To learn more about the event, or to register, visit the race website.


Hope to see you there!
