350 Boulder is working locally to help solve the global climate crisis and transition from fossil fuels to a sustainable future.
We promote local clean energy, locally-grown organic food, low-GHG planning and transportation, no fracking, and a community that’s resilient to the challenges we face from extreme weather and ever rising fossil fuel prices. We are focused on municipalization, fracking in Boulder County, the fracking ballot measure and divestment. We meet monthly and are happy to welcome new members to our team to help lead the transition to a safe, healthy future!
April 28: 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Boulder Tour de Frack
As fracking continues to threaten Boulder’s communities many of us are still wondering what residential drilling looks like and the potential impacts to our families.
Join 350 Boulder County for the Tour de Frack on April 28 as we head into our neighboring communities to visit fracking sites and hear from experts on environment, health and safety.
During the tour, you will learn the basics of fracking as we stand face to face with the latest technology. This is a great opportunity to bring all of your unanswered questions, feel what it is like to have a fracking rig in your backyard, and learn ways to get involved in local efforts to protect Colorado communities.
We will hear on topics including:
Climate Impacts of Fracking – Micah Parkin, Executive Director of 350 Colorado
Wildlife Impacts in Open Space – Dana Bove
Health Impacts of Fracking – Dr. Larry Moore, Physicians for Social Responsibility
Entrance to the tour is $10 and includes transportation to and from the city of Boulder and entrance to our debrief after party. We also have sponsorship options for low income community members and students.

BOULDER COUNTY TEAM LEADERS
Elisabeth is on the 350 Colorado Board of Directors and the co-team leader of 350 Boulder County.
“I grew up a city girl, but good fortune brought me to Telluride, CO in 1979 where I lived until 2013 when a newborn granddaughter lured me to Boulder. Colorado has taught me a deep love and appreciation for the natural world along with the strong desire to protect it for many generations to come. I can bear the present threat to our environment only if I stay engaged and active. 350 is the perfect venue for me.”
Mark spent much of the past 20 years working with about a dozen non-profits, including a decade as creative director for Blue Planet Network, a global non-profit he helped launch in 2004.
“I’m now most focused on issues that affect my own family, especially future grand kids. These issues are global problems, created by us, which means we can solve them. But every day we wait, we make this task harder. Several years ago, 350.org impressed me as creating the most bang for the buck in terms of building awareness and affecting change. I wanted to get actively involved locally, and 350 Colorado provides the opportunity to participate in many great programs, that address the challenges of climate change, which we can carry out in Colorado to impact the world.”
