I had a good experience talking with the Forest Supervisor and some of his staff and the training from Great Old Broads helped! We knew to start with positive introductions that connected us to the land. I was able to share a special perspective of Broads on wilderness and other critical forest issues. The training from Broads helped me structure comments, their brochures and handouts let me show a connections to protecting the lands the Forest Service is charged with managing. Broads gave me the courage and support I needed to step forward and let the Forest Service know there is a new kid on the block that can support them and their purpose...and also keep pressure on them to do the right thing. Broads give me courage and support to step forward and speak out for our public lands.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
learning more about how to effective interact with agencies.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Make them bigger and able to reach more people
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the wonderful support and companionship with other Broads. Broads pulls in a wonderful group of women who common interests and goals and help us make a difference.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Marvelous. Supportive, interested and working to help me make a difference.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
reach more women and save more of our public lands for our grandchildren. This is a grassroots organization that empowers people to make a difference in this world.
Ways to make it better...
I had more time to spend with the folks. I need more of their enthusiasm to keep me charged.
In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
Reaching more of the people who really care about wilderness and wild places.
One thing I'd also say is that...
I love Broads.
