Tell President Biden: Designate Castner Range National Monument in El Paso, Texas

On March 26, Secretary of Interior Deb Halaand visited the Castner Range near El Paso, Texas at the invitation of local groups who have been building support for permanent protections for the area.

The Castner Range is a 7,081 acre former Army artillery facility east of El Paso in the Franklin Mountains and is adjacent to Franklin Mountains State Park. Also close by is Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument, on the other side of the Texas-New Mexico border. Both the state park and the monument protect plants and wildlife of the Chihuahuan Desert. Adding Castner Range as an additional protected area would create a wildlife corridor for mule deer, mountain lion, javelina, and other wildlife species.
