Happy National Intern Day! Meet Francisco Uribe "Hi my name is Francisco Uribe and I am originally from Vacaville, CA. I studied at Sacramento State University with a major in Recreation, Parks & Tourism. I have background in firefighting and natural resources. I am of mexican decent and very in touch with my roots from Jalisco, Mexico. My hobbies are anything to do with outdoors, and many years as a personal trainer working out and helping others achieve their goals. My future goals consist of landing a career with a federal or state organization with an emphasis of outdoor recreation or firefighting. But for now I look forward and hope to learn as much as I can as life goes on." #FindYourPark #EncuentraTuParque #FindYourWay #Trails50 #NationalInternDay
Happy National Intern Day! Meet Ximena Cuervo. "Hello! My name is Ximena Cuervo, and I’m an interpretive and outreach education intern for the Juan Bautista de Anza Trail. I’m from Colombia and was raised in Miami, Florida. Although I only lived in Colombia for five years before immigrating to the United States, my culture and relationship to my heritage has been kept alive by Miami’s large Colombian population and diverse latino community. South Florida’s close proximity to the Caribbean and South America has allowed bridges of cultural resistance and indulgence for many residences! I moved to the Bay Area to attend UC Berkeley, and recently graduated with a degree in Sustainable Environmental Design and a concentration in Forestry & Natural Resources. Apart from green architecture, city planning, and forestry, I'm interested in marine biology and ocean conservation. And of course, coming from an immigrant, low income community, my passion for social and environmental justice drives my career objectives. I want to be the voice for my community and help provide accessibility to the Earth's beautiful natural landscape.
I'm excited to participate and share our history through the National Park Service with the Anza Trail!" #FindYourTrail #FindYourPark #Trails50 #nationalinternday #FindYourWay
Thank you for everyone who came out and volunteered at the Latino Conservation Week Peralta Creek clean-up. With your assistance, we removed invasive plants from the creek, picked up garbage, and filled raised planter boxes with new clean dirt. The Anza Trail appreciates all your hard work and dedication and we look forward to seeing you on the trail soon!

On July 4, 1776 while thirteen colonies on the east coast declared independence from England, Spain was expanding it's empire to the San Francisco Bay.
Although the Presidio of San Francisco operated under many flags and cultures within the past 200 years, the ground it stands on was inhabited by many for thousands.
As we commemorate Independence Day, we do so with Many along side us. (Image: Reenactors carrying flags at an outdoor ceremony)
