Becoming an Outdoors-Woman workshop offered in Kansas

PRATT ­– If you’ve ever wondered what baits catch what fish, how to start a fire with your bare hands, or even have thought about coasting a creek in a canoe, you should sign up for the 2014 Spring Becoming An Outdoors-Woman (BOW) workshop this May. Held at Rock Springs 4-H Center May 16-18,the workshop will offer participants courses on everything from wood-carving and GPS basics, to rifle marksmanship and fly fishing.

Offered through the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism, BOW is a non-profit, non-membership program designed for teaching women outdoor skills. The workshop will offer over 25 different classes thanks to a core of volunteer instructors, including KDWPT employees, law enforcement officials, and even past participants, all of whom are considered to be experts in their field.
