Celebrate Women and Wilderness with a Glass of Wine on August 26

The free, informal social gathering is being held to learn about state and regional wilderness protection opportunities and reach out to members and friends.

Starting at 3pm with libations and light appetizers, Broads’ and Friends’ Board of Directors, staff, members and supporters will be on hand to discuss how to help protect wild public lands. At 3:30 pm, the all-women band QUIRKY, featuring Cindy Grey, will perform bluegrass music. At 4pm, Veronica Egan and Shaaron Netherton, Executive Directors of Great Old Broads for Wilderness and Friends of Nevada Wilderness, respectively, will talk about current programs and activities.

The event is free and all are welcome. Younger generations – our future stewards – are especially encouraged to attend. Sponsors include Patagonia, Great Basin Brewery and Total Wine. For more information and directions visit greatoldbroads.org. To RSVP, please call (970) 385-9577 or email Ellen Stein at ellen@greatoldbroads.org. A similar gathering will be held Tuesday, August 28th, at Alpine Meadows in partnership with the California Wilderness Coalition. Visit www.greatoldbroads.org for more information on this event.
