One of Boulder’s favorite holidays is coming up this week, Earth Day! There will be several events around Boulder to celebrate the planet we all call home and to promote sustainability.
The Boulder Rotary Club and the Museum of Boulder announced a new sculpture to be placed downtown on the corner of Broadway and Canyon in honor of Earth Day! Donated by Grace and Gordon Gamm, and sculpted by Charles Sturrock, the sculpture will be located along the Infinite Walk of Peace.
The Infinite Walk of Peace is a space designed to stimulate the senses with the sound of the rushing Boulder Creek and the smell of nature to the feeling of textures. It highlights an area of mindfulness in the community - a space to generate thoughts about peace in our everyday lives and peace in the world.
Join the community on April 22 at 2:30 pm for a dedication of this new sculpture to Boulder. The event will highlight conversations about peace and environmental sustainability held at the auditorium of the Boulder Public Library. Features presentations by Boulder Mayor Aaron Brockett, City Manager Nuria Rivera-Vandermyde, and former Congressman David Skaggs. There will also be special musical performances by four very accredited women in the community: Jenny Price, Beth Osnes, Michelle Ellsworth and Patty Limerick.
A special announcement will be made to engage the community in a call to name the sculpture. This contest will be offered from April 2022 through August 2022, culminating in a selected name and a special International Day of Peace presentation at the same site on Wednesday, September 21, 2022.
While enjoying the beautiful downtown of Boulder, take advantage of Boulder B-cycle’s free rides for Earth Day Weekend (April 22-24). If you’ve never had the opportunity to ride an e-bike, this is your chance to do it for free! An eco-friendly option for exploring downtown and surrounding areas.
Let's celebrate our planet and all the steps we’ve taken to protect it while recognizing and promoting all the steps we still need to take to create a sustainable Earth for generations to come. Boulder is home to some amazing natural wonders and so many outdoor activities for you to enjoy. So be sure to do your part to heal the planet and keep Boulder a beautiful place to live and visit.
See you around Downtown,
