Ribbon Cutting for Wakeem/Teschner Nature Preserve Trail set for Wednesday

This Wednesday,  Frontera Land Alliance (Frontera) will be hosting both a ribbon cutting celebrating the creation of a ½ mile education trail and a guided hike of the Wakeem/Teschner Nature Preserve.

Frontera officials say the celebration will “highlight the importance of land conservation for El Paso’s and Texas’s future and thank our dedicated volunteers and supporters.” Frontera believes that this event is happening at a critical time for the future of El Paso.

“The actions we take today have many long-lasting consequences for our state, our region and our future,” says Scott Cutler, Frontera President. “Living here wouldn’t be the same without wild places to explore and clean, safe water to fuel that exploration.”

 

Cutler also believes that land trusts can bring people together.

“The lands that we protect make up the special fabric of the place that we call home.” “We are El Pasoans, working together to conserve the lands we grew up with and the water we depend on,” says Janaé Reneaud Field, Executive Director of Frontera. “We want to ensure that our landscape can be left intact for all of us today and for the future.”

According to the Frontera website, Resler Canyon was their first land preservation project; aided by the donation of funds to purchase the land by Dr. Richard Teschner in 2005 (full story here).  Water flow from the canyon feeds the Keystone Wetland, a city-owned, privately-managed natural area and site of the archeological remains of a 4000-year-old Native American village. The mile-long length of Resler arroyo soils and plants provide vital filtering that enhances the water quality for this rare desert wetland.

The Resler Canyon Ribbon Cutting will be held Wednesday, May 16, 2018, at the Northern dead-end of Cadiz Street. Directions can be found here.

The ceremony will begin at 4 p.m. with a few remarks from Dr. Richard Teschner and Mr. Charlie Wakeem, co-founders of the preserve, followed by a guided walk on the education trail.

Learn more about Frontera at their website and visit the Texas Land Trust Council’s website for more information on land trusts and preservation efforts.
