The latest restoration effort on one of Southern Arizona's major cattle ranches was unveiled Saturday with a reminder that there is plenty of work yet to be done.

The county dedicated the newly named Hacienda de la Canoa Ranch headquarters at Raúl M. Grijalva Canoa Ranch Conservation Park, a $4.2 million project that is part of the larger Canoa Master Plan. The park is on the east side of Interstate 19 about a mile north of the Canoa Ranch interchange.
