The working group tentatively named the Boulder Outdoor Coalition is planning a social event for Tuesday January 29, 2019 from 6:00 to 9:00PM. The gathering and presentation will take place at Full Cycle Tap Room and Espresso Bar on Pearl Street in Boulder.
Who Should Attend?
Leaders and members of local non-profits interested in the care, conservation and access to Boulder's public lands. The broad coalition should include representatives of all types of outdoor recreation enjoyed on our public lands, including:
Anglers, bird watchers, climbers, coaches/trainers, dog walkers, gravel & road cyclists, hikers, horseback riders, junior rangers, land managers, local bicycle shops, mountain bicyclists, non-profit advocacy organizations, outdoor equipment and clothing, para-gliders, regional trail advocates, stroller parents, trail builders, trail runners, and walkers
The event will serve both to meet folks in person and to announce the incremental plan to the group. Some ideas being considered are linking the coalition to a large national/regional established entity with an existing set of declared values. Another idea is to share a draft of a position statement on an item that the coalition could eventually endorse, for example, a statement regarding the OSMP Master Plan, the Eldo-to-Walker trail, and other special planning processes. Another idea is to ask that nonprofit participant groups indicate participation in the group by a vote of their organization's board. For profit organizations would also be invited to be named in the coalition.
Thanks to Boulder Beer, there will be free beer. Snacks will be provided thanks to Open Boulder Foundation.
