frontera land alliance

frontera land alliance the chihuahuan desert is a place of extraordinary biological diversity, isolated sky-island mountains, and unexpected oases—a little-known “inner frontier” for our continent.
The Frontera Land Alliance was launched by a group of concerned citizens in the spring of 2004. It was incorporated in the State of Texas in September, 2004, and received 501(c)(3) non-profit status from the IRS in January, 2005. Frontera's first land preservation project, acquiring the 91-acre Charlie Wakeem/Richard Teschner Nature Preserve of Resler Canyon, was completed December 23rd, 2005. Since then, the land trust has been actively engaged with many natural resource conservation initiatives in the El Paso region. Frontera’s affairs are managed by an all-volunteer Board of Directors with additional guidance from members of the Advisory Board.

Tarantula Hawk in action!

If you’ve ever wondered how the tarantula hawk got its name...

Fall is the best time to see a tarantula in the park, as this is their mating season, and we have already started to see several of them come out of their burrows! This unlucky fellow was most likely out in search of mate when a tarantula hawk interrupted their plans.

"To keep their environmentally sensitive acreage pristine for future generations, owners turn to land trusts...

Frontera is an accredited land trust ✅

Land trusts are nonprofit organizations with a mission to conserve land and water. Such trusts began working in Texas in the 1960s and expanded in the 1990s. Today, more than 30 land trusts operate in Texas. They acquire parks and protected areas, own and manage nature preserves, and arrange conservation easements on private lands."

To offset that, the George Observatory located inside the park has one of the largest telescopes in the U.S. that is regularly available for public use. The...

Land Trust Alliance shared that the Land and Water Conservation Fund is fully funded! This month, we're celebrating the realization of a 50-year-old dream across the conservation community: the Land and Water Conservation Fund now has full and dedicated funding. That means that $900 million will be committed each year to protecting important land, water and recreation areas that benefit all Americans. Thanks to all of you who have been advocates, donors and supporters of land conservation to ensure that our parks are properly funded, our national treasures are protected and we can continue to expand Americans' access to the outdoors.

Word of the day snag!

What is a snag?

In forest ecology, a snag refers to a standing dead tree. Leaving dead trees standing everywhere are very important because snags can also be called wildlife trees. Decomposers like bacteria and fungi, insects, and other invertebrates often thrive in dead and decaying wood. Cavities, hollows, and broken tops in the snags are very important habitat for small mammals, birds, and bats. Snags are also optimal habitat for primary cavity nests such as woodpeckers.

This week we spent 3 early mornings filming and documenting Frontera current and past projects. This was a great opportunity provided by #MountainStar Sports Group launched an initiative called #Chihuahuas Volunteer Pack & Heart of Goal. This initiative, presented by Helen of Troy, benefited local nonprofit organizations, that have previously participated in El Paso Giving Day by providing MountainStar Sports Group staff available at no charge to local nonprofit organizations which have been significantly impacted by the COVID crisis.
