Boulder Creek, Colorado
Earth Law Center joins Boulder Rights of Nature (BRON) and other local partners to establish the Boulder Creek Watershed as a legal entity possessing rights. Although ecologically and culturally important to the region, Boulder Creek faces many water quality and flow challenges.
The campaign seeks to establish legal rights including the ability to flow and to be pollution-free. It also seeks the right to restoration. The Boulder Creek Watershed would also have one or more legal guardians that enforce its rights and interests.
BRON is a leading advocate for Nature’s rights in Boulder County, CO. While successfully advocating for stronger environmental policies in Boulder County, BRON also launched a successful documentary series and host regular talks on local rights of nature issues. Earth Law Center is a member of BRON.
