Desde Exploradores de Mar al Voluntairo Ambiental

In 1941, this unique building stood at the edge of a yacht harbor. It was constructed for the Sea Scouts, a part of the Boy Scouts of America. After 50 years of use, the Sea Scout left the base in 1991. It was five years after Palo Alto residents voted to stop dredging and let the harbour return to marshland.

Notice that the building looks like a ship. Local architects Birge and David Clark designed the building to honor its location on the water. The Clark brothers shaped the main hall like a rounded ships's hull. They also included portholes windows and gangplank decks.

Palo Alto philanthropist Lucie Stern commissioned the building, which originally cost $12,000.

With its rich story, Palo Alto designated the Sea Scout as a local historic building in 2002. The Environmental Volunteers restored the abandon building and as of 2012, gave it new life as a community center for environmental education.

Desde Exploradores de Mar al Voluntairo Ambiental


En 1941, este edificio único se sitúa en el borde de un puerto deportivo (de yates). Fue construido por los Exploradoes del Mar, una parte de los Boy Scouts of America. Después de 50 años de uso, los Exploradores del Mar salió de la base en 1991. Esto fue cinco años después de que los residents de Palo Alto votaron para detener el dragado
del puerto y dejario al retornar a una zone pantanosa.

Tanga en cuenta que el edificio se parece a un barco. Arquitectos local, Birge y David Clark, diseñaron el edificio en honor a su ubicación en el aqua. Los hermanos Clark formaron a la sala principal como el casco redondo de un braco. También incluyeron las ventanas de portilla y las cubiertas de pasarela.

Filántropo Lucie Stern de Palo Alto comisionó al edificio, que originalmente costó $12,000.
Con su historia rica, Palo Alto designó a la base de Exploradores del Mar como un edificio histórico en 2002. Los Voluntarios Ambientales restauraron al abandonado y a partir en 2012, le dieron nueve vida como un centro comunitario de educación ambiental.
