Historic Canoa Ranch tours. Have you ever paid a visit to the Raúl M. Grijalva Canoa Ranch Conservation Park? It’s 4,800 acres of land listed on the National Register of Historic Places, including hiking trails, a lake and a pollinator garden. And lucky for us, it reopened to the public earlier this month! They’re even doing guided tours every Saturday again. On these, interpretive guides share their knowledge about the history of the ranch and take visitors inside the buildings. 8:30 to 10 a.m. Saturdays through October. 5375 I-19 Frontage Road in Green Valley. $5.
