                              Owner info

                              About the owner: Glockner's Homeport has been home to commercial fishers Cliff & Connie Glockner for most of their lives. They earned their living and raised their family here on the banks of Bayou Lacombe. Recognizing the importance of outdoor life and the ecosystem that make it enjoyable, they were instrumental in the Save Our Lake movement to clean up Lake Pontchartrain, and were awarded the National Wetlands Award for their efforts. With St. Tammany being the fastest growing parish in the country, they realized that something had to be done to preserve some of our natural ecosystems for future generations. They initiated the movement to form the Big Branch National Wildlife Refuge and drew together a diverse coalition to make it a reality.
