MONTGOMERY-Registration is now open for the next Alabama Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) workshop. The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources sponsored event takes place at the 4-H Center near Columbiana, Ala., on October 5-7, 2018.

BOW is a three-day workshop designed for women ages 18 years or older who would like to learn new outdoor skills. The workshop offers hands-on instruction in a fun outdoor learning environment. Participants choose from courses such as rifle, pistol, archery, fishing, camping, hiking, canoeing, mountain biking and many more. A new class being offered this fall is Raptor and Reptile Husbandry. Also, Medicinal and Edible Plants is returning to the fall class schedule. 

BOW coordinator Hope Grier said the classes offer basic outdoor skills training. “There are many ladies who have not been exposed to these outdoor activities and are apprehensive about trying them,” she said. “BOW is ideal for those women because everything is taught at a beginner level.”

The registration fee of $275 covers meals, dormitory-style lodging, program materials and instruction. Enrollment is limited, and classes fill up fast. Those interested in attending are encouraged to register as soon as possible.
