Short Description of Activity

Laurie reviewed the Care Call on Membership and followed up with emails to 13 newly paid members.


I modified the letter for the newly paid members and sent it out to 13 new Broads. I want to get more folks engaged both at our chapter meetings as well as our google groups. I don’t have a place on the spreadsheet to document my attempts so maybe we could get another column and I coul d modify it so I don’t have to keep switching spreadsheets.



We are delighted to welcome you “abroad” and thank you for your interest in our national grassroots movement to protect America’s wild public lands.
I wanted to personally invite you our upcoming Chapter Meeting on February 16, 6:30pm on Zoom.
Taking action and having fun is what we, as Cascade Volcano Broads, are all about. We stand up and act as a voice–a bold and boisterous voice–for what we believe:
• Wilderness is central to biodiversity and creating a life-sustaining society and planet.
• Wild places are our heritage and our gift to future generations.
• Fighting Climate Change by planting trees on the Chehalis River is one of our proudest accomplishments

Here are ways to join the Broads community and jump-start your advocacy journey to protect the wild places you love:
• Learn about public lands issues.
• Have fun advocating for the places you love.
• Go on a Broadwalk and learn from the land.
• Go on a Broadwork and help with restoration.
• Apply to become a Broadband leader and attend our Wilderness Advocacy Leadership Training.
• Like Broads on social media.
Once again, welcome to Broads. A women-led national network of more than 8500 members and supporters, and over 40 Broadband chapters in 17 states. We are a force for nature! Please contact me if you have any questions. We use google groups to engage our Broads community to limit the amount of unwanted emails as well as focusing on the areas of engagement which you choose. These include Advocacy, Stewardship, Movies and Books, membership (outreach), and hiking. We are currently involved with advocating for the Pumice Plain on Mt St Helens and preventing both a road and a mine from going in. We are also involved with a campaign to breach the Lower Snake River as well as prevent the proposed flood retention project (dam) from going in on the Chehalis river. We also are involved with tree planting, trail building (WTA), solitude monitoring, as well as an educational outreach to table at trailheads for Leave No Trace. Our tabling at the wildlife refuges have been put on hold due to COVID but we are hoping to start those up again as well. Let me know of your interest and I will include your name on the google groups that you choose.

I hope that you will join us for our monthly zoom meeting on February 16. The Zoom invite will go out on February 15. I hope to see you then!
