A Broad View


Great Old Broads for Wilderness—yes, that’s really their name—is a feisty group of active older women (AKA Broads) dedicated to preserving and protecting Wilderness and wild lands for future generations. Headquartered in Durango, Colorado, this grassroots organization has 37 chapters (Broadbands) sprinkled across the United States.

Great Old Broads for Wilderness

Warriors for Wild Places

Broads are known for having a style of their own. They are tenacious, fierce, and won’t back down from a fight when it comes to protecting Mother Nature—and all their activities are infused with fun and a sense of humor.

As lifelong nurturers and caregivers, our approach is one of perseverance and determination, rather than militancy and contentiousness. Broads have a heart-felt and seasoned outlook on the benefits of protecting our wild, public lands.

Broads in Action

Broads speak out on local and national conservation issues, organize events to raise awareness, and get boots on the ground to enjoy the outdoors as citizen scientists to record and monitor the damaging effects of activities that degrade fragile landscapes and wildlife habitat. Other activities include hiking, lectures, films, camp-outs, potlucks, advocacy training, attending public hearings, and more!

Broads also work with public agencies (BLM, NPS, USFS) on a variety of projects such as stewardship activities, developing travel plans, and documenting wilderness qualities to support preservation efforts.

Everyone is Welcome

Great Old Broads for Wilderness welcomes anyone with a passion for wild places. To qualify for membership, you don’t have to old, a broad—or even great—but you must be WILD for Wilderness.

Show your love for Mother Earth and experience camaraderie and connection with like-minded folks! Find out more at
