Even though the weather was cold, the Rockport Whooping Crane Strut was lots of fun. The refuge mascot was there, along with her handler, Visitor Services Manager Laura Bonneau. Our favorite big bird started the race, greeted runners & walkers at the finish line, and helped hand out prizes. Friends of Aransas representatives were there to talk with people about Friends and the refuge. A portion of the registration fees will be donated to our Water for Wildlife Fund. We appreciate everyone that participated, and especially the Rockport Parks Department for letting us partner with them in this fun event.
