Commissioners adopt proclamation at Aug. 25 business meeting
The Boulder County Board of County Commissioners have approved a proclamation in support of the 30x30 Campaign to Protect 30 Percent of Lands and Ocean by 2030. The 30X30 for Nature Petition is part of "The Campaign for Nature." (website)
This initiative to preserve 30% of our lands and oceans worldwide by the year 2030 is consistent with Boulder County’s longstanding values in support of environmental stewardship and climate action. It is a science-based effort that recognizes the many benefits of conserving and restoring our lands and waters, from mitigating climate change impacts to preserving the Earth’s biodiversity.

The proclamation supports efforts by the U.S. Congress to champion this goal, efforts which have been led by Colorado’s U.S. Senator Michael Bennet and Congressman Joe Neguse.
