Description

The Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail (Anza Trail) spans 1200 miles from the Mexican border at Arizona to San Francisco California, crossing many cities, counties, states, and communities of very diverse backgrounds. The story and Anza expedition is one that embodies California’s diversity today. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, California has an estimated total population of 39,250,017. Of the total population, 38.9% percent are Hispanic or of Latino descent. Our goal is to connect the Hispanic/Latino commu- nity with family friendly hikes and programs and educate our visitors about the Anza expedition. 2018 marks the 50th Anniversary of the National Trails System Act. During this anniversary year, we seek to reach and connect with communities of color in the San Francisco Bay Area. We wish to start by meeting and inviting the Hispanic community to the National Trail system and visiting community centers with Anza related educational programs. With a working relationship and trust between families and the National Park Service we wish to introduce diverse audiences and create future stewards of the parks and National Trail system. The intern will work with the Anza Trail staff to enhance the digital presence of the Anza Trail and orient and interpret the story and legacy of the Anza Expedition to digital visitors (Facebook and Instagram).
