Are local open spaces equally accessible to all communities and all income levels?
Join us in discussing stewardship of the beautiful natural lands of San Mateo County and the challenges of providing equitable access and preservation. Hear from influential organizations about their public access goals, programs, and successes. A leader from each organization will share their passion for our amazing local land as they address how they think about integrating equity and inclusion as well as areas for growth.
