350 Boulder is working locally to help solve the global climate crisis and transition from fossil fuels to a sustainable future.


In December of 2020, we succeeded in getting Boulder County Commissioners to pass the strictest oil and gas regulations in the state! This is a huge victory, but there is still a lot of work to be done to ensure a sustainable future for all. We, along with local coalition partners, are continuing calls for a ban on fracking in Boulder County and we hope you will join us in taking action.

Action opportunities:

  1. Vote in the Boulder County Commissioner elections in June 2022! You can watch a recent candidate forum here. (Disponible en español tambien. Haz un clic a ‘subtitles/closed captioning’ y los captitulos aparecerán)
  2. Sign the Petition Urging Boulder County Commissioners to Ban Fracking locally.
  3. Write a Letter to the Editor or Op-ed, to educate the community on the harms of fracking and urge local elected leaders to take action! Sign up to write an LTE here.  You can also find Tips and Contact Info: Writing a LTE and/or Op-ed here.

Also, in June, 2020 we heard from Dr. Detlev Helmig about how Boulder County is already being impacted by fracking emissions, and also from attorney Kate Merlin about how a ban on fracking is legally defensible. You can listen to the recordings of the event at these links: Part 1 (14 minutes)Part 2 (50 minutes).
