San Mateo Outdoor Education
SMCOE conducts an award-winning Outdoor Education program where thousands of students and hundreds of teachers and cabin leaders spend a week at Outdoor Education each year to learn about the natural world, explore the forest and beach ecosystems, and work together as a community.
Safe Routes to School San Mateo County
Safe Routes to School San Mateo County encourages and enables school children to walk and bicycle to school by implementing projects and activities that improve the health, well-being, and safety of children and result in less traffic congestion and emissions caused by school-related travel.
