The Goal of These New Webinars

GET INVOLVED - Learn all about the latest-and-greatest resource conservation topics and what you can do to empower yourself and others to conserve resources in San Mateo County.

GIVE BACK - Volunteer to educate your friends, neighbors, kids, teachers, and community about the value and benefits of resource conservation.

While we do not ask the Resource Conservation 101 webinar participants to commit to volunteering your time, we highly encourage all webinar participants to volunteer to promote resource conservation. If you participate in a webinar, and commit to ten hours of volunteer hours service you will earn you a "Certificate of Participation" from the County of San Mateo as recognition of your commitment to sustainability and your community.
