Becoming an Outdoors Woman (BOW) is a nonprofit educational program offering hands-on workshops to adult women ages 18 and older. We encourage a supportive environment conducive to learning, making friends and having fun. No experience is necessary and BOW is for women of all ages and fitness levels. Participants have the opportunity to learn a variety of outdoor skills such as fishing, hunter safety, target shooting, archery, outdoor cooking, camping, rock climbing and rappelling, nature photography, boat and trailer, hiking and more.
