Lost Dog Conservation Easement
Lost Dog are foothills that are adjacent to the FMSP. These foothills greatly impact the diversity of plant and animal species present, and the foothills themselves provide spectacular views of the geologic features of the Franklin Mountains. Lost Dog possesses a combination of diverse plant and animal habitats, complex geology, spectacular scenery and a suite of cultural features. The arroyos on Lost Dog provide corridors for wildlife and for water flow during rains. With the preservation of Lost Dog, the vegetation will remain undisturbed and will assist in reducing erosion and flooding. Flora and fauna will have a source of food and water along with places in which to live undisturbed. Now preserved, the view-sheds will remain a wonderful asset to the residents of the City of El Paso and surrounding areas, as well as a great attraction to out-of-town visitors.
