Come Home to Treehaven for an Original-Style BOW

Did you know that the first-ever BOW workshop happened 25 years ago at Treehaven Field Station in Wisconsin? And that workshops have been offered at Treehaven every year since then?


It’s 2016 and BOW is still going strong! Since that inaugural event in Wisconsin, BOW has grown into an international program with workshops in 38 states and 6 Canadian provinces, plus BOW Destinations to Iceland, Baja Mexico, Costa Rica, Trinidad and Tobago, and more.

We love exploring the world but it’s always good to get back home. Come home to Treehaven (or come visit for the first time!) for the August 26-28, 2016, original-style BOW with over 20 classes to choose from, evening programs, including a live bird of prey show featuring Wesley the snowy owl, a fashion show featuring styles from then and now, campfires, camaraderie, great food and fun.
