The Frontera Land Alliance
AUGUST 2020 UPDATE

The El Paso Community Foundation has received a $50,000 donation earmarked for the Frontera Land Alliance Endowment Fund, which was established several years ago. The donor, Richard Teschner, is a long-time supporter of the Community Foundation and of Frontera. He gave the gift to benefit Frontera’s work on preserving land and, in particular, negotiating conservation easements, which are legally-binding agreements between land owners and 501(c)3 nationally-accredited land-trust organizations such as Frontera. “I’m a great believer in using the law to conserve the land,” Teschner said, “and what better an organization to join forces with Frontera than the El Paso Community Foundation?”

We were honored to be part of the program by Diana Moy, Park Interpreter / Volunteer Coordinator, Wyler Aerial Tramway State Park for a Q & A live-interview which was shard on FB and Instagram. On FB alone they reached over 700 views. We also have links to Frontera videos on YouTube that you can connect through our website.

We are gearing up for the annual Celebration of our Mountains events, working to establish safe ways to volunteer as a family or as an individual at Resler Canyon. In addition, we’ve set aside some dates for fall hikes. All participants are required to wear masks and observe distance—for safety reasons of course. And do not forget that Sept. 26th is National Public Lands Day!
