Rancho Gallina Inn and Eco-retreat

Rancho Gallina is Santa Fe's newest historic inn, located just off the Turquoise Trail on Bonanza Creek Rd. Wake up to clear country air, soak in our hand-built cedar hot tub, take a walk on the grounds or down Arroyo Gallina (from which we take our name), or start your day with world-class cycling right out the front door.

The ranch combines the rustic charm of classic New Mexico architecture with modern luxury. Features include:
• Beamed ceilings, romantic Kiva fireplaces, private baths, private and shared portals and courtyards
• Luxurious down bedding and high quality linens
• Kitchens/kitchenettes with French press coffee
• Cedar soaking hot tub, fire pits, courtyard fountain, double hammock, bocce ball on the grounds
• Beginning summer 2014: farm-fresh breakfasts from our classic French trained chef/owners, including eggs & produce from the ranch and made-to-order espresso drinks
• Wifi throughout, but we encourage you to unplug, unwind and relax

Your innkeepers have overseen the ranch’s historic preservation and 21st century environmental upgrades. The facility is now 100% solar-powered, with both high- and low-tech water and energy conservation, from geothermal heating/cooling to composting and xeriscaping.

We are minutes from state parks and historic mining towns, including the art communities of Galisteo and Madrid and both the Bonanza Creek and Eaves movie ranches. Santa Fe's dining, galleries and museums are less than half an hour away, and both downhill and cross-country ski destinations are within 45 minutes.

Ortiz Mountains Educational Preserve

The Ortiz Mountains Educational Preserve (OMEP) incorporates 1,350 acres in the upper reaches of the Ortiz Mountains, including Placer Peak, the highest peak in the Ortiz range at 8,897 feet (2712 meters). Once a center of mining activity during the New Mexico gold rush in the early mid-nineteenth century, the Preserve contains several historic mine shafts. The Preserve is located approximately 30 miles southwest of Santa Fe off the scenic Turquoise Trail.

OMEP is owned by Santa Fe County and managed by Santa Fe Botanical Garden. A right-of-way agreement with Lac Minerals allows SFBG to cross their property to access the Preserve.

The Ortiz Mountains Educational Preserve is a spectacular natural area, a ponderosa and piñon habitat with everything from black bears (Ursus americanus) and coyotes to horned toads, bats, antlions, and over 80 species of birds.
The Ortiz Mountains Educational Preserve (OMEP) is fully staffed by trained volunteer docents. Docents are adults of all ages, walks of life and educational backgrounds. The Preserve is accessible only via high-clearance four wheel drive vehicles. People who like to be outdoors are encouraged to join us.

Each year, we offer a Docent Training Program to prepare volunteers to lead nature walks and hikes at OMEP. The docents’ responsibility is to greet visitors in the OMEP parking area and accompany and guide them up the road and into the Preserve.

Our Docent Training Program is a free one-day event with both classroom and on-site presentations. Training includes classes, nature walks and digital presentations all taught by our Teaching Team made up of SFBG senior docents, educators and resource professionals and covers topics including plant life, geology, history, mining and more.

Trainees are required to spend time at OMEP observing activities and interpretive presentations. In order to achieve full docent status, trainees are expected to attend the full day training. Upon successful completion of the training, trainees can begin volunteering as a docent.

During a tour, Peter engages his guest’s interest by bringing the wonders of the night sky to a level that is more accessible and understood. The clockwork of the sky and what is seen depending upon the time of year is explained. Major constellations are pointed out. Using star lore based upon Greek mythology and other cultures from around the world, star patterns are explored and placed into a memorable context.

Moving from a broad view of the sky, Peter gradually brings the more remote jewels of the night sky within reach. Participants are introduced to close-up views of objects such as galaxies, nebulae and star clusters. The latest scientific findings about each object are shared to help provide a foundation for deeper understanding.

In 1962 the store was purchased by their youngest daughter, Vera, and her husband, Bill Henderson.

Today with the help of their daughter, Desiri, and her husband Allen, Henderson Store continues to sell high quality Southwestern Indian jewelry, rugs, and pottery at reasonable, competitive prices.

It took Ross Ward over 40 years to carve, collect, and lovingly construct what is now Tinkertown Museum. His miniature wood-carved figures were first part of a traveling exhibit, driven to county fairs and carnivals in the 1960s and '70s. Today over 50,000 glass bottles form rambling walls that surround a 22-room museum. Wagon wheels, old fashioned store fronts, and wacky western memorabilia make Tinkertown's exterior as much as a museum as the wonders within.
Inside, the magic of animation takes over. The inhabitants of a raucous little western town animate to hilarious life. Under the big top, diminutive circus performers challenge tigers and defy gravity while the Fat Lady fans herself and a polar bear teeters and totters.

Throughout, eccentric collections of Americana (wedding cake couples, antique tools, bullet pencils and much, much more) fill Tinkertown's winding hallways. Otto the one-man-band and Esmerelda, the Fortune Teller, need only a quarter to play a tune or predict your future. Through a doorway and across a ramp waits a big-sized surprise: a 35' antique wooden sailboat that braved a 10 year voyage around the world.

Ever a work in progress, Tinkertown is ready to inspire your imagination and awaken your creative spirit. We look forward to seeing you soon! Open daily 9-6, April to November 1st. Last ticket sold at 5:30 pm.

The Friends of Tijeras Pueblo, in partnership with the Forest Service, host a variety of events such as "Saturday Afternoon at Tijeras Pueblo", "Star Nights", and special archaeology, pottery and flint knapping workshops. We are proud of our Junior Archaeologist Program and special tours conducted at the Tijeras Pueblo Archaeological site.

Monthly Lecture Series
You can count on the Friends for a stimulating evening program when you attend one of our monthly lecture/programs. The "Featured Program" is held at 7 pm, the second Tuesday of the month (excepting June, July and August when the lecture series is "on vacation"). We meet in the large conference room at the Sandia Ranger Station in Tijeras. We are told that the topics are always interesting and that the refreshments are great. Lectures are presented without charge, but we do ask that you consider making a donation at the door. All donations go to development and implementation of interactive exhibits and educational programs at the new Interpretive Center. Hope to see you there!

Hibben Center Archiving Crew
The Archiving Crew (volunteers) have worked very hard over the past year. Artifacts from Linda Cordell's 1979 Pottery Mound field school have been completed. The collection has been re-bagged, re-boxed, labeled, written up, computerized and shelved.
Now that Tijeras Pueblo and the 1979 Pottery Mound field school have been completed, the Archiving Crew will continue to work through the materials excavated by Dr. Frank Hibben. About 300 boxes have been completed and taccording to Dave Phillips, another 300 have yet to be done. The big push will be to finish archiving the Hibben Pottery Mound material.

To arrange an interesting and educational visit to the archaeological site for your classroom, club or other organization, for inquiries or additional information, just email us at: info@friendsoftijeraspueblo.org
