Frontera's first land preservation project, acquiring the 91-acre Charlie Wakeem/Richard Teschner Nature Preserve of Resler Canyon, was completed December 23rd, 2005. Sin

Fun Fact: The Yellow Warbler is known for its bright yellow color and broad breeding range in forested waterways across the United States. Yellow Warblers are frequently targeted by Brown-headed Cowbirds that lay their eggs among the warblers’ to force the warbler to raise cowbird chicks. To counter this, Yellow Warblers build a new nest floor to cover the cowbird egg, so the attempt is unsuccessful. Help protect migrating birds like the Yellow Warbler by turning lights out at night from March 1 through June 15.

Protect migratory birds this spring by turning LIGHTS OUT across Texas! You can take action by turning out all non-essential lights outside and inside from 11 pm - 6 am every night from March 1 – June 15. Going lights out is particularly important during Peak Migration (April 22 – May 12), when half of the total migratory bird traffic for the season passes through Texas. Take action and spread this message far and wide to protect the approximately two billion birds that will travel through the Lone Star State this spring.

Artstream, one of our supporting organizations hosted Expressive Journeys earlier this month. Artstream collaborated with Pots N Prints, frontera land alliance and El Paso Museum of Archaeology, local artists and others to create a cultural and educational outdoor experience outside the classroom. Children and families were invited to shape clay, play with green screen and story-telling and experience music and mindfulness. Pots N Prints is a mobile studio that takes printmaking and ceramics to the Southwest and West Texas. Learn more about Artstream here: artstreamep.org.
“Castner Range is one of El Paso’s most precious resources and natural refuges and we are thankful Secretary Haaland came to experience the land and see the importance of protecting Castner Range for herself. In the Paso del Norte Region, we’ve been working over 50 years to safeguard the cultural, ecological and recreational resources of Castner Range. The call to action today is clear: President Joe Biden must permanently protect Castner Range as a national monument.” –Janaé Renaud Field, Executive Director of frontera land alliance #Castner4Ever #MonumentsForAll #MonumentalShift
I want to thank Congresswoman Veronica Escobar and frontera land alliance for organizing and hosting an amazing meeting with U.S. Department of the Interior Secretary Deb Haaland. We discussed designating Castner Range as a national monument. It was very important for me to stress that open space isn’t just about preserving our natural resources, but also providing equitable access to nature for every family possible. No matter their location or socioeconomic status. I look forward to working with Congresswoman Escobar and district neighbor Joe Molinar - District 4 City Representative and all our local and state partners on our next steps for Castner Range.
"'Our community has been waiting for 50 years,' said Janaé Reneaud Field with frontera land alliance. 'We need the Biden administration to act now to protect Castner Range for the people and ensure the cultural, historical and environmental treasure can be enjoyed by future generations.'” #Castner4Ever #MonumentsForAll

Last July, we awarded the frontera land alliance a $10,000 grant to protect 1,006 acres in El Paso, Texas. A welcome addition to the city’s outdoor spaces, the Lost Dog easement creates a connection between the 26,000-acre Franklin Mountains State Park to the east and residential areas to the south and west. The area is well known for mountain biking and is also popular with runners, dog walkers, and hikers who seek out the respite and relaxation found on nearly 10 miles of trails. Until recently, the Lost Dog land was slated for development. In the May 2019 El Paso city election, 89% of voters supported a measure that directed the city to preserve the land. Frontera worked with the city to facilitate the easement, and the land is now permanently protected and open to the public. The Lost Dog project supports Frontera’s goal of preserving important remaining natural and working lands in the greater El Paso and southern New Mexico region, and is a success for wildlife, recreationists, and for the future generations of El Paso’s citizens who will benefit from having close-to-home access to this special place. . 📸: Helen of Troy #WeKeepItWild #OurWildFuture

As we celebrate the Fourth of July this weekend, we encourage El Pasoans to consider how our land tells the story of America. Castner Range contains numerous archaeological and historical resources that date as far back as the Paleo-Indian, Archaic and historic Indian groups. Three zones especially rich in archaeological material are the White Rock Shelter area, the Indian Springs Canyon and the Fusselman Canyon Petroglyph Site. Nor did the twentieth century fail to make its mark on Castner Range; recent historical properties include stone foundations, remnants of moving-target rail systems, mining remains, a heliograph site, military firing berms and residues of pre-1926 ranching days. Preserving Castner Range means preserving the history and heritage of one of the most beautiful parts of El Paso. Join us in making it a part of American history--forever. 🌼 Sign here (takes less than a minute!): castner4ever.org #Castner4Ever #AmericatheBeautiful #FourthofJuly #History #Texas 📷: frontera land alliance
Last week, frontera land alliance and Nuestra Tierra represented Castner Range at GreenLatinos's celebration of the 1906 Antiquities Act. Thank you again to everyone who turned out!
