Becoming an Outdoors-Woman" Wilderness Survival Workshop

CONCORD, N.H. – Women who want to learn how to survive in an outdoor emergency situation can sign up for a one-day "Becoming an Outdoors-Woman" (BOW) Wilderness Survival workshop taking place on Saturday, June 7, 2014, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Owl Brook Hunter Education Center, at 387 Perch Pond Road in Holderness, N.H. Participants must be 18 years of age or older.

Registration is now open. To sign up, fill out a print-and-mail application available at nhbow.com. Workshop fee of $55 is due with registration and includes program materials, use of equipment, and lunch. Space is limited, so get your application in the mail immediately if you are interested in attending. Only mailed applications will be accepted.

Taught by New Hampshire Fish and Game Department Conservation Officers, the wilderness survival course will help participants learn survival techniques such as how to find wood and build a fire; protect yourself from hypothermia; build a shelter for protection against the elements; signal for help; use knives and tools safely; find and purify a water supply; prepare a meal in the outdoors; and know what should be in your survival kit.

This workshop is a "Beyond BOW" course. These in-depth workshops are designed to expand on the offerings of traditional Becoming an Outdoors-Woman fall and winter programs, helping women gain the skills needed to participate in outdoor activities on their own.

N.H. Becoming an Outdoors-Woman programs are co-sponsored by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department (wildnh.com) and the New Hampshire Wildlife Federation (nhwf.org).
