The Frontera May 2014 Update
Local Land Conservation
Volunteer Training: We sponsored an early Sunday morning training for volunteers to learn how to install wattles at Resler Canyon. The purpose of the wattles is to catch the soil as it erodes down the hill. Wattles also assist in establishing native plants that secure the side of the arroyo. If you want to help on a volunteer day, please contact the Frontera office. Come on out and help install the remaining wattles on Sunday, June 8th starting at 8 a.m. For details contactJanae’ Reneaud Field.

Additional information.
Frontera Annual Event: It felt odd not to host an April Meeting/Fundraiser and get together with all our wonderful supporters. But we’re really looking forward to seeing you at Frontera’s 10th year celebration which will feature tours, talks, and wild animals on the site of our first-ever conservation easement—the one at Thunder Canyon. We’ve partnered in this event with the City of El Paso. The Thunder Canyon celebration will give us the perfect opportunity to show first-hand and educate neighborhood associations, individuals, boards, city departments, etc., on how flexible a conservation easement can be. The venue lets people come and go as they please. Frontera is offering three separate talks and four guided hikes throughout the morning. We’ll also be thanking Frontera’s many sponsors, volunteers and supporters over the past 10 years and presenting the annual Rock Award.
