Frontera is going even greener! As a great way to celebrate Earth Day (Saturday, April 22) we will not automatically mail print versions of The Frontera Land Alliance’s bi-annual newsletter moving forward. Instead, Frontera will email each of you a monthly newsletter (unless you have specially noted you want a printed version). We’re doing this so we can use the money heretofore spent on the bi-annual newsletter, over $3,000, directly for conservation projects rather than on printing and design costs. If at any point you want a printed version of our monthly updates or want to go email only please contact the Frontera office: email@example.com.
El Paso Electric Company, Thank you! Frontera has received funding from the El Paso Electric Company to assist in implementing an Educate through Connectivity to Nature program. Frontera is committed to increasing the number of people that spend time exploring and moving in our natural world. This will lead to better health and a better quality of life which will only increase because people will feel connected, and learn about nature and the land in which they live. By making these connections through education and action, we not only improve and sustain the mental and physical health of our community members for many years to come, but we also improve and sustain the health of our region’s beautiful natural environment for future generations.
And here is yet another piece—published in the Times and written by Frontera’s Executive Director—on why plants are important to our daily health: We need plants for healthy life
