"B.O.W. is an amazing weekend of learning outdoor skills in the supportive company of other women," said Fish and Game's Laura Ryder, coordinator of the Becoming an Outdoors-Woman program for New Hampshire. "We give women a chance to explore all kinds of challenging outdoor activities that may become lifelong interests."
The B.O.W. weekend includes more than 30 course offerings, including archery, fly-fishing, hiking, canoeing, handling firearms, outdoor survival, kayaking, campfire cooking and much more. Participants mix-and-match three or four classes during the weekend, depending on their interests.
The weekend of workshops for women has been offered annually since 1995.
