What we're about

Help us create the proposed Boulder Meadowlark - Jumping Mouse Open Space - a remarkable ecosystem that is home to nesting song birds and raptors like the red-tailed hawk.

Boulder's Meadowlark - Jumping Mouse Open Space provides important wetlands habitat and is the feeding grounds for deer, black bear and moose. The globally and federally endangered Preble's Jumping Mouse calls this open space home.

At the proposed open space - enjoy hiking, cycling and bird watching.

Sadly this key habitat area is under threat by the University of Colorado that is seeking to bulldoze wetlands and rare riparian meadow habitat in order to build a thousand new condos, apartments and sport fields.

As a member of the Meadowlark - Jumping Mouse Open Space you'll help encourage the University of Colorado to do the right thing and build new facilities on existing CU parking lots rather than bulldozing critically important wetlands habitat.

Thank you for joining the Meadowlark Open Space Meetup.

Wine and Cheese Social - Meadowlark - Jumping Mouse Open Space

Have you ever wanted to work with an amazing team of people to create a new Boulder Open Space? Imagine if you could help create a place like Chautauqua and Eldorado State Park! Come lean more at a fun Volunteer Wine and Cheese Social with the Meadowlark - Jumping Mouse Open Space! There are roles to do what you love including: - event and concert organizers - community outreach - email supporters with invites and opportunities to make a difference - meetup outreach - post great events - fundraising -legal - are you a law student or attorney? The University of Colorado and City of Boulder are violating the law by not conducting Preble's Jumping Mouse wildlife studies and an Environmental Impact Assessment before annexing this wildlife habitat into the city and approving development. The federal Endangered Species Act will be a key tool in protecting the Meadowlark open space. -web design and graphic artists -accounting/finance -speak at City Council and community events -lead volunteer teams and nature hikes at the Open Space -media and public relations. The University of Colorado claims to be an environmental and sustainability leader even as they plan to bulldoze wetlands and meadows habitat. Media attention will help CU Boulder to do the right thing and build new condos and apartments on existing parking lots rather than destroying wildlife habitat. -what other things do you love to do?
