Year after year, participants of the Becoming an Outdoors-Woman workshop gear up to face new outdoor challenges, from casting a fly rod for the first time to tackling the whitewaters.


“Becoming an Outdoors-Woman” is a workshop with a focus on learning a variety of basic outdoor skills. It is a special opportunity for women 18 years or older and is for you if:

  • You have never tried these activities, but have hoped for the opportunity to learn from an expert.
  • You are a beginner who hopes to improve your skills.
  • You know how to do some of the activities, but would like to try your hand at some new ones.
  • You are looking for the camaraderie of like-minded individuals, and are looking for an inexpensive, fun weekend adventure.

Course offerings range from shooting sports, hunting, water sports, fishing, hiking, birdwatching and more.

A Google Group is maintained and persons in this list receive advance workshop brochures and registration information. Workshop fees are around $200. The fee includes instruction, program materials, use of equipment and facilities, meals, lodging, and take-home items.

If you would like to be kept up to date on workshop offerings, sign up for the Ohio BOW Google Group today.  If you have additional questions, contact the Ohio BOW coordinator at aquatic.education@dnr.state.oh.us.
