CNHA honors the passing of former Chincoteague Wildlife Refuge biologist and lover of nature Irvine Ailes and the passing of CNHA volunteer Denny Waslohn. Denny spent many Saturday mornings at the top of the Assateague Lighthouse chatting with guest and pointing out the pony locations in Black Duck Marsh. Irvine officially served the refuge from 1977 till 2004, while much of his life was devoted to the study and preservation of wildlife.
