The Frontera Land Alliance protects forever natural areas, working farms and ranches, water and wildlife for future generations in the west Texas and southern New Mexico region of the Chihuahuan Desert.
The El Paso region sits within the northern portion of the Chihuahuan Desert, one of the three most biologically diverse deserts in the world. The Rio Grande is one of the world’s major rivers and its waters are the lifeblood of the El Paso region. Outdoor recreation is part of our way of life from fishermen to children who play in the parks. Protecting our natural areas will ensure that we still have places to hike, bike and boat and see wildlife or just enjoy the peace and quiet of nature.
Whether we live in the city or the countryside, we rely on the natural systems that support us, affect our health and happiness and give us a sense of place, pride and identity. Having clean water and air and plenty of natural open spaces attracts businesses and will improve our living standards. A healthy natural environment is a cost effective tool to support economic growth, improve public health and enhance quality of life. Our ranchers and farmers are great stewards of their land and play a vital role in protection of water, wildlife, animal corridors, healthy soil and food production.
