Latino Outdoors

Latino OutdoorsEarlier this month, Latino Outdoors held a Park Maintenance Day event in the Presidio of San Francisco to help restore the historic Battery Chamberlin near Baker Beach. Built in 1904, Battery Chamberlin was constructed to accommodate the coastal defense artillery developed in the late nineteenth century. The park holds the last 6-inch “disappearing gun” of its type on the west coast. Sofía García, Client Services Manager at Community Initiatives, volunteered and shared this great picture of herself with event organizer, Aurora Cortes.
