The Frontera Land Alliance
June 2018 Update

We wanted to take a minute and be sure that our sponsors are thanked! We could not do what we do to conserve water, wildlife and lands and manage the Nature Discovery Program without our sponsors.

Business Sponsorships for 2018 (listed in alphabetical order)

CMD Endeavors, Inc.’s sponsorship helps Frontera discuss the idea of pooling corporate, agency and individual resources for a large regional land conservation project. This is seen in the new partnership with Fort Bliss Child and Youth Services. 

El Paso Title Company  host Frontera’s board meetings and at times our committee meetings. They have beautiful accommodations, which help us get through the nitty gritty of running Frontera’s daily operations. 

High Desert Native Plants LLC’s assistance allows us to participate in conservation of open lands. The plants on these lands are needed to provide habitat for wildlife, insects and aids in water conservation.

Hunt Companies Southwest Community Development division sponsors the Nature Discovery Program. The program includes recreation and education activities from kayaking, bee hikes, to learning about burrowing owls! 

Jobe Materials’ sponsorship has allowed Frontera to promote its conservation programs. Jobe’s support has assisted directly with habitat restoration, stewardship and water conservation programs, all critical programs to Frontera and the region.

Though an individual and not a corporation, Richard Teschner has sponsored us in more than just one way. His donations and activities support Frontera’s general operations as well as its programs in education and outreach.

Keller Williams Realty is a new Frontera sponsor! Its support has helped us arrange and conduct webinars at their El Paso office. At the webinars we learned about how to reach minorities in a community, design accessible trails for recreation, learned how title searches and appraisals related to conservation easements, to start-up of small farms. 

Frontera hosted our first kayaking trip on June 9th. And what a trip that was! We started at Leasburg Dam, New Mexico. We were led by Mike Gaglio and Scott Cutler who shared facts and stories along the way. This kayak venture on down the Rio Grande was full of excitement and discovery.  

 

 Upcoming Events:

 

Latino Week celebration!  Come on out and celebrate Latino Week with Elizabeth Demoultrie, Brenda Berumen and Benny Pol (Board of Directors, The Frontera Land Alliance). The “week” will feature an hour-long walk through the Knapp Canyon. July 21, from 8 a.m. to 9 am. Explore nature through a lens and ask questions along the way about the surrounding wildlife and flowers. The hike is very easy, but the trail may have uneven footing. Meet at the corner of Mountain View and Zircon. (MAP)
