For many years the Santa Fe was owned by the Sedgwick family who operated a cattle ranch on it.  Today, thanks to the generosity and vision of Paula and Cabot Sedgwick, the Santa Fe Ranch is dedicated to advancing agricultural and environmental research and to providing active, hands-on, educational, out-of-doors opportunities to community members.Ride on through our web site and learn all about us and the wonderful goings-on at the Santa Fe Ranch…

There are always a great deal of fun, educational events at the Santa Fe Ranch and the Las Lagunas wetlands, also owned and operated by the Santa Fe Ranch Foundation.  Contact us for details at 520-287-7051.

Volunteers and visitors are always welcome!  Just call us to make an appointment and discuss the many opportunities available.  Make sure you call first as we have small children, small animals, and large obstacles running free on the Ranch and Las Lagunas!


The Santa Fe Ranch Foundation is dedicated to: the conservation and preservation of the land and its non-renewable resources; to agriculture and its role in our daily lives; and to science, social studies, physical and health education.


The Santa Fe Ranch is home to a wide variety of plants which themselves provide habitat to innumerable creatures.  Hundreds of species of bird, along with deer, Lynx, Javelina, Jack Rabbits, skunks, raccoons, rabbits, coyotes, and of course, insects, snakes and the millions of other kritters that go bump in the night live rent-free at the Santa Fe Ranch….
