Open Boulder Call to Action: Community Connections and Inclusion
“Together, we build a community of stewards and seek to find our place in open space.” OSMP tagline
Topic & Messaging:
Connecting youth to nature
High School teams foster future trail stewards, they need to view City public lands as friendly to their chosen recreational activity.
Protecting cultural and scenic resources
Create recreational opportunities on less sensitive open space to disperse users
Trails that are interesting keep users confined to the tread, we support modern trail design that is both fun and sustainable
Dog access allowed at dispersed properties
Encouraging connections with nature that reduce stress and improve well-being
Help get users out of cars by creating better community connections to trails South (badly needed) and North. Remodel Boulder Valley Ranch sooner rather than later.
Encouraging social equity and cultural diversity
Include bike racks at trailheads
Encourage public transportation to stop at popular trailheads
Fostering new ways of learning to enjoy and protect our environment
Meet the kids where they are…on mountain bikes! Encourage kids using bikes to explore public lands in their backyard
