Sept. 24, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Central Park

Join our community celebration of Pollinator Appreciation Month during the eighth annual Bee Boulder Festival! This free event will take place just west of the Farmer’s Market, where the work of Boulder’s pollinators will be on full display.

Start the day with a stroll through native plants heavy with seeds in the Civic Area and Boulder Library's Habitat Hero garden. These vibrant patches of flowers and shrubs are reminders that bees, moths, flies and other insects are the foundation of life.

Spotlighting Cool Boulder

This year, the festival will spotlight Cool Boulder programs that tackle the climate and biodiversity crises through natural climate solutions. Come ready to learn about local efforts to regenerate tree canopies, soils and habitats, as well as to get involved in climate action.

We want to hear from you!

There will be opportunities to share your climate action ideas in the form of audio recordings, written notes and drawings.
