Becoming an Outdoors-Woman weekend set for July 19-21|
The Michigan Department of Natural Resources Becoming an Outdoors-Woman
(BOW) program is offering a fun-filled weekend for any enthusiastic
woman, 18 or older, who is interested in learning a new outdoor skill,
improving existing skills or simply sharing a fun outdoor experience
with other women.
A three-day BOW weekend will be held July 19-21 at Safari Club
International's camp near Caseville, adjacent to Sleeper State Park.
This exciting program will include classes in basic fishing and fly
fishing; shotgun, handgun and small bore rifle instruction; archery;
camping basics; map and compass; backpacking; wild edibles; amphibians
and reptiles; birding; canoeing; kayaking; water survival and more. The
workshop cost is $150 and includes all food, lodging and instruction.
"This program is an especially good opportunity for women wishing to
learn new outdoor skills and to gain knowledge and confidence in a
non-threatening, friendly atmosphere," said Lynn Marla, DNR BOW
Marla said the program, limited to 100 women, is filling up fast.
"Women need to act now if they wish to get a chance to join other
adventurous women and enthusiastic instructors in a great 'up north'
setting." For the registration form, contact Nancy Thurston at
