1:30 pm - 4:30 pm
San Mateo County in partnership with Stanford’s Natural Capital Project and the San Francisco Estuary Institute is embarking on a project to identify feasibility of nature-based adaptation strategies along the Bayshore and develop approaches for future shoreline protection and management for specific geographic areas, known as Operational Landscape Units (OLUs). Join San Mateo County and representatives from local, state, and federal government, nonprofits, and businesses for two Sea Change SMC workshops on sea level rise adaptation strategies. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss and envision approaches for future sea level rise solutions in specific geographic areas along the County’s Bayshore.
The workshops will be geographically focused. Please have a representative from your organization join the one that most represents your area or community of focus.
