Great Old Broads for Wilderness
Celebrates 30 years of protecting wilderness

Great Old Broads for Wilderness (Broads) is a national grassroots organization, led by women, that engages and inspires activism to preserve and protect wilderness and wild lands.

Conceived by older women who love wilderness, Broads gives voice to the millions of Americans who want to protect their public lands and wilderness for this and future generations. As a women-led conservation organization, we bring knowledge, leadership, and humor to the environmental and wilderness preservation movements to protect our last wild places on earth.

Protect where you play.

Ready to explore wild lands and waters? Ready to learn? Ready to take action and get involved? You’ve come to the right place. Broads is creating a movement. Currently, we’re 8,500 Broads (and Bros) strong across the nation engaged in educational forums, grassroots leadership training, outdoor education events, and advocacy. We are known for being bold, telling it like it is, and having a lot of fun—while bringing forth a collaborative model of leadership. Join our community and become a member—all ages welcome.
