The Santa Fe Botanical Garden features two distinct sites: The Botanical Garden at Museum Hill and the Leonora Curtin Wetland Preserve in La Cienega (a few miles south of Santa Fe).

The Botanical Garden at Museum Hill

Designed by landscape architect W. Gary Smith, the Botanical Garden features native plants mixed with appropriate non-natives, which are all selected to demonstrate the variety and richness that can be achieved in this region of scarce water. The site is 20.5 acres; approximately 8 acres are developed with walking paths through the distinct gardens: The Orchard Gardens and Art Trail, and our ethnobotanical garden, Ojos y Manos: Eyes and Hands Garden.

The Leonora Curtin Wetland Preserve

This 35-acre nature preserve is located a few miles south of Santa Fe in La Cienega, adjacent to El Rancho de las Golondrinas. This rare natural cienega, or “marsh” in Spanish, hosts a bountiful diversity of plants and wildlife. The Preserve features beautiful cottonwood trees, a spring-fed pond and shaded walking paths. The Preserve contains three distinct plant communities or zones: riparian/wetland, transitional, and dry uplands.
