In a region rich in resources, unique geography, warm weather, and even warmer people, Castner Range stands out.
We want to protect it. Forever.
From the prehistoric people whose artifacts and petroglyphs remain there 12,000 years later to its 40-year run as a U.S. Army firing range in the 1900s, Castner Range has a unique history and some of the most beautiful views in all of Texas. Especially in early spring, when it is awash in Mexican gold poppies. The Frontera Land Alliance, the Franklin Mountains Wilderness Coalition, Nuestra Tierra, Hispanic Access Foundation and the El Paso Community Foundation are happy to announce that this picturesque 7,081-acre range is finally a national monument.
Castner Range National Monument.
It has a nice ring to it.
Help us plan for the future of our new national monument.
