The Masquerade Mermaid Ball is just around the corner! Join us for a magical in-person evening to celebrate our 10-year anniversary. Mingle with other ocean lovers and celebrate our connection to the ocean and the amazing ability we all have to make a difference - no matter where we live!
We'll enjoy delicious sustainable food from acclaimed chef Daniel Asher, specialty cocktails, Rowdy Mermaid Kombucha and other drinks, live music, and an online auction at the Driftwind at the Boulder Reservoir, an open-air venue. We will be outside a majority of the evening (and all time indoors will be in a large open-air space) but due to Boulder County's recent mask requirements, please bring a mask with you.
Live music will be played by Manas Itene, world renowned drummer and singer who has been traveling the world for 22 years with Michael Franti & Spearhead, and Colorado Congressman Joe Neguse will be in attendance for a portion of the evening.
Attire is whimsical, oceanic, and cocktail. There will be a costume contest as well, so bring your oceanic best!
All proceeds will support our mission of building land-to-sea stewardship. We do this through protecting our ocean, watersheds, and climate, and working to prevent plastic pollution.
Due to COVID, we're capping our event to keep it small. Tickets will be limited, so get yours now!
Your support allows us keep protecting our ocean planet, from summit to sea.
We address the most serious threats facing our ocean—climate change, overfishing, pollution, offshore oil development, overfishing, a lack of strongly protected areas—through federal policy and legislation, building relationships with policymakers, serving as a resource for inland constituencies, and facilitating education, outreach, and community building.
We address the impacts of agriculture on our watersheds, microplastics in our waterways, and host creek cleanups across the country. We facilitate community engagement and advocate for watershed-friendly lawn and yard care practices, healthy personal care products, and support bans on toxic sunscreens around the world.
We prevent plastic pollution through campaigns targeting single-use plastics, working collectively with coalitions and as part of larger movements to get to the root cause of plastic pollution, scientific studies that assess the extent of microplastics in our waterways, and legislative change at the state and federal levels.
To protect our ocean we must protect our climate. Our ocean is one of the most powerful carbon sinks we have and restoring ecosystems one of the best ways we have for addressing the climate crisis. We support legislation to address the climate crisis and advocate for including ocean protection as a key solution.
