The City of Dallas Park and Recreation Department is a steward of its resources and is committed to maintaining an accurate inventory of its natural assets. Urban Biologist Brett Johnson is responsible for leading a natural resource management plan for the Dallas Park and Recreation Department.
Some key components of that plan include: implementing a feral hog trapping program to reduce feral hog damage on parks properties, get a restoration program in place for the unique blackland prairie remnants at White Rock Lake, conducting an inventory of natural resource assets within Dallas Parks properties, and increasing pollinator conservation areas around the city.
