Bain Construction ensures the Frontera bi-annual newsletter is mailed to over 1,000 households, and is even possible. With the newsletter we educate people on conservation of water, wildlife and land. The newsletters are a great item to hand out at events. 

 CMD Endeavors, Inc., sponsorship is helping Frontera to discuss the idea of pooling corporate, agency and individual resources for a large regional land conservation project. Such collaboration will touch many aspects of our community from addressing public health, quality of life, active recreation, wildlife corridors and views, to the conservation of land that would mitigate flooding.

Through its Southwest Community Development division, Hunt Companies is the sponsor for the 2015 Annual Event. In addition, Hunt provides in-kind support for Resler Canyon. 

Jobe Materials’ sponsorship has allowed Frontera to promote its conservation programs. Jobe Materials’ support has assisted directly with habitat restoration, stewardship and water conservation programs, all critical programs to Frontera and the region. 

Though an individual and not a corporation, Richard Teschner has sponsored us in more than just one way. His donations and activities support Frontera’s general operations as well as its programs in education and outreach. Without him, we would not be where we are today.

Sierra Machinery is supporting habitat restoration, removal of invasive vegetation and helping to reduce erosion at Resler Canyon.

Winton Flair sponsorship assists with costs associated with the cultivation of donors and supporters. Winton Flair’s end goal is to grow the organization’s programs and projects for the preservation of farms, ranches, water and open spaces in the region. 

Arroyo Clean-up:  The Northwest Early College High School freshman class contacted The Frontera Land Alliance (Frontera) looking for a community project that would engage 85 students. This was during the same time period when the El Paso Water Utilities (EPWU) had contacted Frontera asking if we would be interested in holding a conservation easement on two newly-acquired properties. The Frontera Lands Committee toured the arroyos and was very pleased with the natural resource values that they held. It was perfect timing for the school to contact Frontera, and a great collaboration ensued! Frontera signed a one-day agreement with EPWU allowing Frontera to oversee the students as they collected trash in Cloudview Arroyo. The school and Frontera provided chaperones and the students picked up items such as tires, bike rims and building materials that were dumped in the arroyo along with endless quantities of fast-food bags and cups. Several more days of trash pick-up are still needed at the arroyo, but we’re off to a really good start!
