Becoming an Outdoors-Woman

Becoming an Outdoors WomanThe Becoming an Outdoors -Woman® (BOW) program is a workshop primarily aimed at women but is an opportunity for anyone 18 years or older to learn outdoor skills - skills usually associated with hunting and fishing, but useful for many outdoor pursuits.

Originally started in the United States in 1991, Nova Scotia began offering the program to women in 1997. Its primary focus is assisting people to overcome barriers, whether social or financial, to learning outdoor skills.

If you are a novice or have no experience in fishing, hunting or other outdoor sports but want to learn, this program is for you.BOW image

BOW® is a mix of fishing, hunting and other outdoor pursuits that combines a fellowship experience with women.
