The Texas Master Naturalist Blackland Prairie Chapter is pleased to announce that chapter member Bob Mione (Class of 2012) has been selected to receive a 2021 Green Source DFW Sustainable Leadership Award. Congratulations Bob!
Bob will be receiving the Unsung Hero Award for his work as volunteer manager for the Connemara Meadow in Allen. Over the past decade, he’s been leading the restoration of the meadow’s Blackland prairie. He has also been very involved working to reintroduce Bobwhite quail to Collin County.
“There are few others who have given as much of their time, energy, and passion to restoring the Blackland Prairie in the DFW area than Bob Mione,” said one of his nominators.
“He leads by example. You cannot go out there without finding Bob with a shovel in his hand or leading a group through the chest high wildflowers,” said a second nominator. “The world needs more people like Bob.”
Bob will be recognized for his achievement at the 10th annual Green Source DFW Sustainable Leadership Awards which will be held Nov. 18 at 6 p.m. on Zoom.
The event, hosted by Green Source DFW and their parent nonprofit The Memnosyne Institute, honors outstanding leaders and volunteers in the North Texas green community.
This is the second year the awards will be held virtually due to the pandemic. For the first year in the history of the awards, the winners were announced prior to the celebration.
Since the awards program is being held virtually, the public is invited to join. If you are interested in attending, here is the Zoom link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89938890605.
