A full-time auto technician for the past 25 years, Horne now pours his passion and expertise into lovingly restoring classic cars for his grateful Napa Valley customers.

The San Francisco Zoo

The San Francisco Zoo

(20)

The origins of the San Francisco Zoo can be traced back to 1886. Once part of the now-defunct amusement park Woodward’s Gardens, the menagerie opened with a lone California grizzly bear. The zoo’s mission has evolved from an animal showcase to a state-of-the-art care and wellness facility focused on conservation. It is home to over 1,000 exotic, endangered, and rescued animals representing more than 250 species. The zoo also has several lush gardens of native and foreign plants, making it a place for family memories. The historic 1921 Dentzel Carousel and the 1904 miniature Little Puffer Steam Train are treasured by generations of visitors. In the fall of 2013, the zoo reopened the newly restored Elinor Friend Playground.
