The Frontera Land Alliance April 2015 Update


The Frontera April 2015 Update

Estate of Maxie Groce Templeton: The late Mrs. Templeton (a San Antonio philanthropist who had previously lived in El Paso) was the donor—and Scott Cutler the named recipient—of $25,000 to support the activities of Frontera such as water harvesting at Resler Canyon and similar projects.

El Paso Electric Grant Awarded! 

The Frontera Land Alliance received $3,000 for general operations to assist with water conservation and land projects. We are very excited and thankful that we’ve been able to grow our partnerships to include substantial financial support of this sort. 

 Kern View Estate II is conserved! The El Paso City Council recently approved the purchase of 15.57 acres known as Kern View Estates II and owned by Piedmont Group LLC.  The purchase and preservation of this critical open space resulted from the collaborative efforts of (and much hard work over ten years by) El Paso City staffers, District #1 City Representative Ann Morgan Lilly and the Piedmont Group itself.
