“Connemara is one of Allen's crown jewels," asserts Bob Mione, Connemara Conservancy board president and recent recipient of the 2023 Texas Environmentalist of the Year award. He will discuss the importance of this region’s natural resource 7:30 p.m. Thursday, September 14 at the Allen Public Library.  Offering a 72-acre oasis for plants and animals, Connemara Conservancy’s local preserve is located along Rowlett Creek near Alma Drive.

 “From world-class sculpture shows, to celebrations, to concerts, to monthly nature walks, to our work as a leader, both nationally and statewide, in land conservation and restoration of native grasses, Connemara and the Connemara Meadow has been a gathering place for those who want to experience the unspoiled beauty and joy of nature for over four decades," declares former Allen City Councilmember and current Connemara board member Ross Obermeyer.

As a master naturalist, Bob Mione has helped the Connemara Conservancy make great strides in rehabilitating its native grasses. The complex relationships between the soil, the fauna, and the plethora of microbes, not only affects the aesthetic beauty of our natural environment but also impacts the practical necessity of efficient food systems.
