The Frontera Land Alliance (Frontera), the region’s only nationally-accredited 501(c)3 organization, announced the addition of Harrison Plourde and Tina Crosby to their Board of Directors.
As Frontera works to conserve water and wildlife resources forever through the preservation of open land, their board of directors is key to that mission.
To carry out Frontera’s mission, the organization is led by a diverse board of directors,” Frontera officials said. “They bring with them the skills that will help grow the conservation efforts in the region.”
Together, the community and Frontera work with our fellow El Pasoans to bring people together to strengthen our Conservation Community by preserving our regional landscape – rich in history, natural resources, breathtaking views and recreational opportunities.
