The Panama Mounts at Bolsa Chica State Beach

If you look carefully as you walk along the trails of the Bolsa Chica wetlands reserve in Huntington beach, you might stumble across the two large concrete Panama style mounts for two of Fort MacArthur's southern most batteries.
The area has been fenced because of a re-vegetation program in the area. The reader board in the background presents information about the gun mounts.
For more information about the restoration and interpretation programs at this location, the Bolsa Chica Stewards meet the 2nd Saturday of each month at the trailer across from the fire station at Pacific Coast Highway and Warner. Call (714) 969-7229
