They will discuss what is being done to reduce wildfire risk in the county. Speakers, community leaders and other experts will then answer questions from event attendees.

English, Mandarin and Spanish audio feeds will be available.

The forum is hosted by OneShoreline, the county’s Flood and Sea Level Rise Resiliency District, and the League of Women Voters South San Mateo County, a non-partisan education and advocacy group that empowers voters and encourages participation in government.

Thursday’s forum is part of a series of public online forums on climate change risk and resilience. OneShoreline offers more information on past and upcoming forums.
