Castner Range: We are requesting an extension on the Office of Economic Adjustment grant through mid-September 2015 so we can expend the full grant funds awarded in the fall of 2010. The remaining funds will allow us to conduct more outreach and host additional meetings to educate new partners on Castner Range. The “Conserve Castner Range” DVD has been in circulation since March 2014; it is now being translated into Spanish for even greater exposure in our bilingual community. We will continue to distribute the DVD to K-12 dual-language programs as well as to Spanish-language TV and radio. The English version of the DVD has been submitted to the El Paso film festival and to the local PBS channel for showing.
Resler Canyon: Wattle work day. We are still working to install the wattles at Resler Canyon. If you have a group of volunteers that would like to volunteer one morning, then please give the Frontera office a call.
Thunder Canyon: We are working hard to plan our 10th year annual meeting. We will be hosting a great event at Thunder Canyon on Saturday, November 1, 2014.
City of El Paso Resilience Meeting: The Rockefeller program is hiring an employee to oversee the grant awarded to the City of El Paso to oversee the creation of a Resilience Plan. The hope is that once such a person is on board then the Franklin and Organ Mountains Cooperative will be able to share and move forward in the production of a complete data set of GIS layers to assist with regional decision making.
