Learned died last week. For those of you who did not know Mr. Learned he was a longtime friend and member of the OG and the ONC. He was the strongest voice of conservation in the Freeport area. He was Dow Chemical Company's corporate reprasen+a+ive +o the Na+Ional Audubon Socie+y. He worked very hard to secure the we+lands in +he recently acquired National Wildlife Refuges on the UTC. He was primarily responsible for the OG obtaining financing for its last two checklists. He aided, immeasurably, to the Houston Audubon Society's Freeport Christmas Count. He was instrumental in Dow's opening its Lake Jackson Nature Trail. He was a rancher, an industrialist, a hunter, and a devout conservationist.
