We are currently looking for a feisty Broad or two to lead/co-lead our St. Francis Broadband.

  • Are you passionate about Southern Arizona wild, public lands?
  • Want to make a difference in your local area?

As you know, there are numerous areas and issues around in the San Francisco River area that need Broad attention.  Local voices are the voices that get attention.

We’ll help you focus your energies, teach you how to advocate for your wild, public lands, help you organize local Broads, and share our Broad camaraderie.

Here’s the Broadband Leader Position Description.

Here’s the application form, which is actually an application to the next Broadband Leader Boot Camp to be held sometime in the spring.

If you have questions, contact our Broadband Coordinator Ellen Stein.

FYI: Broads offers free training to new leaders in the form of Broadband Leader Boot Camps. Participants are trained in grassroots organization, communication, lobbying skills, wilderness history, documentation of on-the-ground abuses, and Broads positions on issues such as grazing, off-road vehicles, and oil, gas, and mineral development. Boot Camps are typically held in the spring at locations that are within a half-day drive from Broads Headquarters in Durango, Colorado. Details of upcoming Boot Camps will be posted as soon as they are developed. (Look for a calendar entry in the right hand column to see if the next Boot Camp has been scheduled.)

Possible Range: SE Arizona, White Mountains, NM boarder area, Apache National Forest, Gila National Forest, Coronado National Forest.

Possible Interests/focus areas: San Francisco River, National forest service management planning, wilderness proposals, wolf re-introduction, fire management, and river restoration.

Possible Projects: Restoration and river clean-up, collaborations with local BLM and USFS, the Leopold Broadband, Gila Watershed Partnership, and Friends of the Frisco.
