Carrizo Plain National Monument Tourism Carrizo Plain National Monument to Offer New Historic Ranch Tour
April 17, 2009

In addition to the Painted Rock Tours currently being offered by the Carrizo Plain National Monument each Saturday two new tours to the historic El Saucito Ranch will be offered this spring. Tour dates are April 19 and May 3.
Call (805) 475- 2131 for tour reservations and information.
The tours meet at the Goodwin Education Center off of Soda Lake Road at 10 a.m. and will caravan up to the ranch. Visitors should bring a sack lunch to enjoy while sitting on the ranch house veranda at the tour conclusion.
The El Saucito Ranch has the distinction of having the oldest standing historic house on the
Monument and is the only ranch on the monument to have been occupied from the pioneer period to modern time. Historic sites such as the El Saucito Ranch are special places that tell us a story about the heritage of California.
The tour includes a short hike lead by a BLM employee around the grounds of the ranch, descriptions of the facilities and the operation of the historic ranch, and stories about the way life was 100+ years ago on the Carrizo Plain.
