The Castner Range in now a National Monument
Last week, Castner Range was officially designated as a national monument!
As members of The Conservation Alliance, we’re excited to celebrate major successes in conservation. The protection of the Castner Range represents 50 years of advocacy efforts led by the community in El Paso to make sure this land is protected for its cultural, ecological, and historical values. This new monument protects nearly 7,000 acres of mountainous terrain between majority-Latino city neighborhoods and Franklin Mountains State Park in El Paso, Texas.
Thanks to The Conservation Alliance grantees: Nuestra Tierra, Monumental Shift, and Fronterra Land Alliance for your hard work in protecting this landscape for communities, culture, and outdoor recreation. We’re excited to celebrate this success with you.
Successes like this one are one of the key reasons AdventureKEEN is a Conservation Alliance member. You can learn more: https://www.conservationalliance.com/
