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!
The 350 Boulder County team meets monthly on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 6:00p.m.
Our current meeting location is
Unity of Boulder
2855 Folsom St, Boulder, CO 80304
(Folsom and Valmont)
Our meetings are open to all 350 Boulder County members and the public. Please let your friends know!

Here is some info on our next meeting on March 8th:
Have you ever wondered what it is like to watch the ice sheets melt before your eyes? Join us this month for an exciting presentation, Perspectives from Greenland, from our very own Mike MacFerrin.
Our 350 Boulder group is up to some exciting stuff, and we want you to be a part of it! We hope to see you at our monthly meeting next Thursday, March 8 from 6-8 p.m. at the Unity of Boulder Church (2855 Folsom St).
Join glaciologist Mike MacFerrin as he brings you along to explore the world’s far northern ice sheets. In additional to presenting some of the latest science coming from Greenland, Dr. MacFerrin will relay personal stories and memoirs from his years watching the Arctic rapidly transform, highlighting the urgency of today’s emissions choices on the planet’s future.
After we are inspired to take action and keep our ice sheets from melting, we will break up into our work groups and continue to work on:
- Planning a Fracking Tour out of Boulder County on April 28
- Organizing a summit of fracking leaders and groups on April 7
- Developing engaging education and marketing materials on fracking to educate our community
Come learn about all of these projects and ways to join in. You’re welcome to join any group, no experience necessary!

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.”
