August 8th Party Celebration of Boulder Bee Safe City

Post by beesafeboulder » Sun Aug 02, 2015 7:48 pm

You are all invited to a Party this Saturday, August 8, from 4 to 6 PM in north Boulder. We really want to reach out to the beekeeping community!!! Please invite your friends also.

Celebrate Boulder becoming a Bee Safe City, This event has important significance. May 5th, Boulder City Council signed a resolution becoming a Bee Safe City, pledging not to use neonicotinoid pesticides that are killing bees, other beneficial insects and birds, critical to our survival and biodiversity. Boulder became a model for Boulder County, as well as cities across the US.

It is spreading! Just two weeks ago, Bee Safe Boulder, (a local non-profit), was invited to speak to the Lafayette City Council about how they too can become a Bee Safe City, and pass a similar resolution.

By focusing on local citizen awareness of the toxicity of neonicotinoids, we are making a significant difference, where federal and state agencies have so far failed us. 33 businesses in Boulder County have signed pledges to not sell or use plants and other plant material pretreated with neonics (or to label what stock that contains it). Colorado commercial plant growers are changing their pesticide use due to consumer demand. We have 8 Bee Safe Neighborhoods in Boulder (many more in process!) and around 1000 households have pledged, accomplished in the past year through the efforts of our volunteers!

You can join us in our celebration/fundraiser at a beautiful home in west Boulder, in a shady Boulder landscape with a lovely stream, a blue grass band, great food, wine, craft beer, and stimulating company. We will have an observation bee hive, a honeybee waggle dance contest, events for kids, raffle gifts, and other such fun, as well as a few short speeches by City Council members and others. Kids are welcome.

Join us in protecting our bees and our ecosystem in beautiful Boulder Valley.
