The Cosanti Foundation owns 860 extraordinarily beautiful acres in central Arizona. At an elevation of 3750 ft., highlands with basalt mesas, juniper, and prickly pear cactus are the backdrop to everyday life. Running through the property is the Agua Fria River, a rich riparian zone, with cottonwood trees and water for a good percentage of the year. Wildlife in the area includes coyote, javelina, grazing cattle, roadrunners, rattlesnakes, scorpions, hawks, jackrabbits and many more. To the East of our property is the 71,000-acre Agua Fria National Monument surrounded by the Prescott National Forest.
