Rockefeller Wildlife Refuge borders the Gulf of Mexico and extends inland toward the Grand Chenier Ridge. The center has been a refuge for wildlife and fish species, and serves as an outdoor laboratory for research on marsh management and fisheries resources. In 2021, plans were made to replace the main office building, an important hub for not only the research but also the many educational and recreational activities that the refuge offers to groups of all ages. AP is proud to be a part of this project as the artwork is a beautiful representation nature and all that the refuge protects.
