OFTEN REFERRED TO AS “GROUND ZERO” FOR SEA LEVEL RISE, SAN MATEO COUNTY IS ONE OF THE MOST VULNERABLE REGIONS OF THE BAY AREA. The County of San Mateo is spearheading an effort to address this challenge under the leadership of County Supervisor Dave Pine, Assemblyman Rich Gordon, and Congresswoman Jackie Speier, and with funding from the Coastal Conservancy. We are working with a broad coalition of governments across jurisdictional boundaries to create proactive solutions for our communities.

Univision Broadcasting will be running a segment about the Youth Exploring Sea Level Rise Science (YESS) project and Bay Area sea level rise planning!
The YESS project just completed a pilot program in San Mateo County this spring. The project was funded by the California Coastal Commission along with a $12,000 grant approved by the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors in October 2015. The funds came from Measure A, the countywide half-cent sales tax approved by voters in November 2012.
Stay tuned for a link to the full broadcast! In the meantime, watch this short clip that was taken at the Univision studio with one of the students, Catherine Mundo, who participated in YESS in Marin.
