As we face an accelerating climate crisis, and many other challenges affecting our dear Mother Earth today, the message of Earth Day is as important as ever.
Join the celebration of our great planet by planting a tree, exploring the city’s mountain parks or by participating in a local event.
Here is a fantastic list from the City of Boulder of local events and celebrations to get involved in climate action today and every day!
Join in a community-wide effort to implement natural climate solutions. Cool Boulder is mobilizing and supporting our community to regenerate our soils, trees, and habitats for a resilient community, climate and future. Sign up to join an action team or become a community resource specialist.

Tree Planting throughout the spring and at the Columbia Cemetery
Even though they’re not having Earth Day-specific events, the city’s Forestry team in the Parks and Recreation Department is focused on sustainability by planting trees! Approximately 400 trees in city parks and public street rights-of-way, at both residential and commercial sites, will be planted this spring.
The team is also working with Flatirons Elementary School to plant 10 trees at Columbia Cemetery on April 29 as part of their Arbor Day events.
Celebrate our planet with Resource Central and Eco-Cycle at 6400 Arapahoe Ave from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tour Resource Central’s renovated reuse facility, get inspired for your summer DIY projects, and rock out to local bands. There will also be food and free family activities to enjoy. Check out Resource Central’s website for more information and RSVP on Facebook.
