Anza Exploration in the San Francisco Bay Area

The East Bay Regional Park District in collaboration with the National Park Service have produced fourteen interpretive panels and a brochure covering the Anza Exploration. The panels circle the East Bay following Anza's spring exploration of the area. They commemorate the 1775-1776 Spanish Expedition which left New Spain and brought 240 settlers, soldiers and others bound for Alta California to colonize the region, explore, and establish San Francisco's presidio and  mission. Anza's smaller East Bay exploration is featured in the interpretive panels and map, inviting people to retrace the travels of Anza and learn about the profound changes set in motion by the expedition on the future of the people and the land around us. The Juan Bautista de Anza Historic Trail is administered by the National Park Service. Funding for the panels was made possible by the National Park Service Challenge Cost Share Program in partnership with East Bay Regional Park District. More information is available at University of Oregon, Web de Anza.
