What is a Broadband?

Broadbands are member-run regional or local chapters across the country formed around Broads’ mission to preserve and protect wilderness and wild lands.


Braods_In_ActionBroadbands—led by volunteer leaders and co-leader teams—are made up of passionate and dedicated Broads and Bros of diverse backgrounds and ages, with a fire for change and a love for the land.

Have Fun Doing Serious Work
Broadbands are focused on education, advocacy, outreach, and collaborative stewardship projects—and humor and joy play a fundamentalBroadband-leaders-Kathleen_Jannadirectory-of-broadbands/idaho-wyoming-teton-valley-whales/ role in our work. Broadband members share stories, experiences, and passions; creating deep connections to each other and the earth that lead to stronger Broadbands and stronger advocacy.

These activities include:

  • Educational events, lectures, films, or book clubs.
  • Stewardship projects to monitor and collect data, build/maintain trails, remove invasive plants, etc.
  • Attending public meetings, writing letters, organizing or participating in protests or rallies.
  • Working with land management agencies and political leaders.
  • Representing Broads at local events, making presentations, and attending gatherings.
  • Hikes, happy hours, and road trips.
  • Hosting local Broadwalk or Broadwork events.
