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 and regenerative agriculture, low-GHG planning and transportation, a ban on fracking, defunding climate disaster and a community that’s resilient to the challenges we face from extreme weather and ever-rising fossil fuel prices. We meet monthly and are happy to welcome new members to our team to help lead the transition to a safe, healthy future!

Boulder County’s current moratorium on fracking is slated to expire in December, 2020. 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. For Organizations: Sign on to a Letter to Boulder County Commissioners encouraging them to place an amendment on the ballot this November for a ban on all new oil and gas installations in Boulder County. *Or, share this letter with organizations, business owners and grasstop leaders and encourage them to sign on.
  2. For all Boulder County Residents: Send a letter to County Commissioners urging them to Refer a Ban on Fracking in Boulder County to the 2020 Ballot. 
  3. Sign the Petition Urging Boulder County Commissioners to Ban Fracking locally.
  4. Write a Letter to the Editor or Op-ed, urging County Commissioners to refer a fracking ban to the 2020 ballot! 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).
