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.

Desert wildlife!

Whipsnakes or Chirrioneras in Spanish are slender snakes that can reach 36 to 72 inches in length; they get their name from the fact that they look like leather whips.

A Castner Range National Monument is about protecting frontline communities and other marginalized populations who disproportionately bear the brunt of climate impacts. #Castner4Ever

Did you know that El Paso’s rainfall is often heaviest in the Franklin Mountains and especially on their eastern side, where Castner Range is located? By conserving Castner we also conserve the drainage “systems” that nature has created over the centuries; we reduce the volume of water that would otherwise flood city streets; and we increase the amount of water that seeps into aquifers underground that are used by our population.

Thank you Jose Gonzalez, founder of Latino Outdoors , for sharing our effort to make Castner Range National Monument !

#spreadtheword #elpasotx #landconservation #castner4ever

A special thanks to José González for believing in our campaign to designate Castner Range as a national monument as he spoke to the Texas Land Trust Council earlier today.

We have long believed that a more inclusive and just public lands system can start right here in El Paso and in the state of Texas. #castner4ever

Thank you Franklin Mountains Wilderness Coalition for being our leading conservation organization in El Paso and for believing in this fight to protect #Castner4ever.

"The local community has worked tirelessly for nearly fifty years to ensure that Castner Range remains in its natural state, barely altered by man... There are so many positives to preserving this special place, not only for our community but for our nation as well."

PUBLIC LANDS: Antiquities Act could play a monumental role in 30x30

With the stroke of a pen, presidents can set aside acres upon acres of public lands for conservation under the Antiquities Act — a potentially enticing shortcut for a White House vowing to protect 30% of the nation's lands and waters in a natural state over the next decade.
