Broadlights:

  • We are a Broadband in our infancy and are focusing on building our group and collaborating with other local organizations.
  • We successfully organized a day hike in the Applegate, followed by anti-Liquified Natural Gas letter writing intensive, topped off with a happy hour and potluck.
  • We’ve partnered with Rogue Riverkeeper to test the water at the mouth of the Rogue River Wild and Scenic corridor.
  • We have participated in public events to bring awareness to our community about Broads.

Wishlist:

We’re looking for other Broads to grow our group, especially women who have a passion for the wild, who are inspired to engage and who are looking to have some fun while protecting public lands. We can’t wait to meet you!
