Supporters of Frontera
As fall approaches, so do grant deadlines. Frontera’s Staff and its Board of Directors are busy planning the upcoming annual event, submitting multiple grants, and working to identify new sponsors to support local conservation efforts. Frontera was present at the SECC and UTEP Agency Fair, attended the El Paso Environmental Summit, and had a booth at the Tenth Annual Chihuahuan Desert Fiesta. See the Frontera interview by EPCC TV Program. Mike Gaglio attended the Society for Ecological Restoration (Texas Chapter) and spoke on The Conservation of Castner Range. Finally we have a work day planned at Resler Canyon. (See below for details.)
We hope you are able to come and celebrate a decade of conservation Saturday, November 1st at Thunder Canyon. Frontera is successful because of YOU, and YOU are whom we want to thank!
