This is a virtual training for new Broadband Leaders, Co-Leaders, and Leadership Team Members. Normally a 5-day, in-person training, due to the pandemic, we moved to an online format. This past April, we trained 15 new Broadband Leaders on this new virtual format and it went very well. Our new leaders are off and running!

More about WALTS

Wilderness Advocacy Leadership Training Session (WALTS) is comprised of powerful leadership training sessions that are hands-on, experiential, educational, and FUN! Our leaders are trained in essential skills to build and motivate Broadbands to use effective and meaningful democratic action to protect the wild places we love most. Topics include:

  • How to take a stand on ecological issues
  • How to interact and advocate for healthy public lands with elected officials and land management agencies
  • Grassroots organizing techniques
  • Leadership, communication, and lobbying skills
  • Wilderness and public lands history
  • Broads’ positions on issues such as grazing, off-road vehicles, and oil, gas, and mineral development
