This year the Foundation will be honoring aviator/conservationists Terry and Mary Kohler, of Windway Capital Corp., for their commitment to the care and protection of our environment. Among their many accomplishments the Kohlers used general aviation aircraft to transport the eggs of endangered bird species to expand their range, including a round-the-world flight over Russia to deliver Siberian crane eggs to Western Siberia in 1997. Also honored will be the world-recognized environmental leader Mr. Lester Brown, founder and president of the Earth Policy Institute.
