Great Old Broads for Wilderness is a national organization that engages and ignites the activism of elders to preserve and protect wilderness and wild lands. We bring voice, knowledge, commitment, and humor to the movement to protect our last wild places on earth.
There 36 Broadbands (chapters) across the nation with dedicated Broads (and Bros) who speak out on local and national environmental issues, coordinate events to raise awareness, and get boots on the ground to monitor and record the damaging effects of grazing, motorized access, and oil, gas, and mining activities on our public lands and wildlife habitat.
You can make a difference (and have fun too!)
