-- Women who already love outdoor sports, would like to try them or improve their ability to do them under expert supervision and instruction can do so at the Becoming an Outdoors Woman workshop, April 30-May 2, at Ross Camp in West Lafayette.
The 15th annual workshop is limited to the first 100 women, 18 years old or older, who register at www.indianabow.com/
The program is designed for women to learn outdoor skills in a relaxed environment. Activities range from shooting clay targets, paddling a canoe, catching a trophy bass, becoming a campfire gourmet cook, making a fur hat, and spotting rare wild birds, to learning to track deer.
Participants design their own outdoor experience to match their interests. The workshop is for women who have never tried these activities, but have hoped for an opportunity to learn; who have tried them but are beginners hoping to improve; or know how to do some of the activities, but would like to try new ones.
Women who enjoy the camaraderie of like-minded individuals and who you seek time away to reconnect with nature are also prime candidates for BOW. For more information, visit the Indiana DNR website at http://www.in.gov/dnr/lawenfor/5810.htm
