Welcome to the Central Oregon Bitterbrush Broadband. We invite you to join us in building an active and engaged organization. We guarantee many special wilderness experiences along the way, and a lot of laughter!
Focus of the Central Oregon Bitterbrush Broadband The Central Oregon Bitterbrush Broadband was formed in May of 2013 to join a national network of 39 other Broadbands in 15 states that comprise the Great Old Broads for Wilderness.
The focus of the Bitterbrush Broads includes:
- Broadwalks: Fun and educational hikes in the Central Oregon region extending from the crest of the Cascades to the John Day River Basin.
- Broadworks: 3 to 5 land stewardship service projects per year that focus on creating ecosystem health, including habitat restoration and noxious weed pulls (3-5 per year).
- Broadchats: Wine and informal chats on issues related to wilderness protection and advocacy (2nd Tuesday of even months).
- Broadsupport: Partnerships with other national, state and local conservation groups in our community who advocate for and support wilderness protection and minimization of climate change impacts (on-going).
Those of us who wish to will also participate in national and regional multi-day Broadwalks organized around specific wilderness issues.
