Outdoors Woman Workshop

Outdoors workshop designed for women begins in September LITTLE ROCK (AGFC) – Are you a woman who wants to improve your outdoor skills or learn new ones? The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission is looking for participants to attend the 2011 Arkansas Becoming an Outdoors-Woman workshop in September. BOW is an outdoor skills workshop just for women. Participants will be provided a non-threatening atmosphere where women can have fun learning skills that will enhance their enjoyment of Arkansas outdoors. The workshop focuses on learning outdoor skills usually associated with hunting and fishing but includes other outdoor pursuits as well.

Sponsored by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, BOW offers instruction in more than three dozen outdoor activities, including canoeing, fishing, hiking, fly-tying, archery, boating, birding, outdoor photography, Dutch oven cooking, scuba diving and shooting sports. BOW instructors provide basic and advanced instruction that is uniquely tailored to each participant's individual ability – a key reason the participants enjoy learning so much in a short time.

The $225 registration fee includes all food, lodging, equipment and supplies. Participants will be housed in a dorm-style facility with numerous amenities, including a pool, tennis courts, hiking trails and a well-stocked lake.

Registration information, as well as information about all the classes is available on the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission website at www.agfc.com/bow. For more information, contact Arlene Green at 501-831-1504 or e-mail algreen@agfc.state.ar.us.
