Sea Change San Mateo County – San Mateo County’s Office of Sustainability’s family-friendly Sea Level Rise Open House, where you can learn about the County’s efforts to evaluate what is at risk from sea level rise and what we can do about the issue.
Please join San Mateo County Supervisor Dave Pine and Supervisor Don Horsley, and California State Assemblymember Rich Gordon for a Sea Level Rise Open House on January 30, 2016 from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at Genentech Conference Center.
Sea levels are rising and at an accelerating rate. In San Mateo County alone, rising sea levels put $24 billion in assets at risk. In response, the County is completing a sea level rise vulnerability assessment to ensure our communities, ecosystems, and economy are prepared for rising waters. The goals of the Open House are to share information on the County’s vulnerability assessment, and to hear how sea level rise could affect you.
Open House Topics:
- What is sea level rise?
- What is the County doing to prepare?
- What is at risk?
- What does sea level rise mean for you?
- How can you prepare for flooding this winter?
- What is green infrastructure? How does it relate to sea level rise?
This will be a family-friendly event with interactive activities and eco-friendly raffle prizes!
