Great Old Broads for Wilderness
Protecting wilderness since 1989

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. And, we’re taking a leadership role in championing the connection between the conservation and restoration of public lands and climate change mitigation. Check out our video to learn more about Broads.

Protect where you play.

Currently, we’re 8,500 Broads (and Bros) strong across the nation engaged in educational forums, grassroots leadership training, outdoor education events, and advocacy.
