The Frontera Land Alliance, the El Paso area’s only 501(c)3 land trust, which promotes and encourages the conservation of the region’s desert, mountains, and rivers for all, has recently appointed its first executive director. Frontera’s Board of Directors has named Janaé Reneaud Field, formerly Executive Director of the Guadalupe-Blanco River Trust, Seguin, Texas to that position.
Ms. Reneaud Field, whose career has been dedicated to conservation, earned her master’s degree in public administration with a concentration in land conservation and also her Bachelor of Science degree from Michigan State University. She served four years as the development and grants manager for the Washtenaw Land Trust in Ann Arbor, MI. She also worked for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and served as a Peace Corps volunteer.
According to Mike Gaglio, President of the Frontera board, “We look forward to many upcoming projects and the growth that will now take place, and we are so pleased to have Janaé in her new role as our executive director.”
“I am privileged to be serving The Frontera Land Alliance and am excited about the challenge to make a lasting impact on the region,” Janaé said.
The Frontera Land Alliance was founded in the spring of 2004 and has an all-volunteer board of directors which consists of citizens who share a love of our land. Over the past several years the Board of Directors has been actively engaged in the purchase of the Charlie Wakeem/Richard Teschner Nature Preserve of Resler Canyon, the deployment of a conservation easement on the West Side’s Thunder Canyon, and much more. The Frontera Land Alliance has many generous supporters, a dedicated Board of Directors complemented by a large Advisory Council, and an amazing potential to create a lasting legacy in the El Paso region in partnership with landowners.
