  • Want to help high school students learn about birds and native plants?

    Frontera Land Alliance, along with several other local environmental groups, is working with Insights on the student-led Environmental Stewardship Initiative, an EPA environmental education grant. We are working with Horizon High School and Cathedral High School by providing in-class workshops and field trips to environmental science students. Each school will be visiting Rio Bosque twice and Keystone Wetlands once. During the field trips, the students will do bird and plant surveys. We are looking for several volunteers to help with either bird or plant surveys. We will provide details once you contact us. Can you help? Here are the dates of our events:

Work Days:

Last Saturday of each month, from 9 a.m. to noon.

1. Help restore and manage the Keystone wetland! These “Keystone Work Days” will be held the last Saturday of each month, from 9 a.m. to noon. Frontera assists in the works days by providing tools, but more importantly Resler Canyon flows into Keystone, it is important that we manage both sites.
