Brett Johnson, Dallas Park and Recreation Urban Biologist and Honorary Lifetime NTMN, was instrumental in bringing the TOMA (Texas Oklahoma Missouri Arkansas) award for Innovative Programming home to Dallas for 2019 with his digital presentation of the Dallas Park and Recreation Bioblitz Program this year at the Southwest Park and Recreation Training Institute. Brett’s presentation told how to plan and implement a bioblitz as well as how to use the data collected for resource management.
This prestigious award has a strong heritage that dates back to 1978 and travels to the winning agency each year. It is won during Brag Night which essentially provides a platform for agencies to showcase their best practices, programs, and projects which is intended to benefit other agencies that take ideas home to improve the communities they serve.
