The Frontera Land Alliance January 2015 Update

The Frontera January 2015 Update

We hope your 2015 has started off well, and we thank you again for supporting Frontera in 2014! Frontera will be very busy in 2015. Committees are now planning the volunteer work days at Resler Canyon to address the invasive vegetation. We have begun to plan a fall cookout at Resler Canyon and another one at Thunder Canyon for Frontera members. Additionally, we have also begun to work on the annual Frontera event. With generous assistance from CSA Design, Frontera will be able to submit a grant request to Texas Parks and Wildlife Department for a half-mile-long natural trail at Resler Canyon to be used for educational hikes. And just in case you missed it, check out the El Paso Times piece, “Open Space Serves Many Critical Purposes.” 

On a cold morning in early January, numerous volunteers from the El Paso Electric Company—plus a few from the Texas Master Naturalist Trans-Pecos Chapter—joined together to construct a burrowing owl nest at Resler Canyon. Below are some photos to show their efforts as well as the end results. What a great partnership and success!! To learn more, see the story in the El Paso Inc. We will let you know if the nest is being used this March.
