Good 2 Go


Becoming an Outdoors-Woman Workshop

Attention adult women. Did you ever want to learn how to shoot skeet, or paddle a canoe? Would you like to learn how to present a fly to rising trout? Maybe you would like to try archery or Dutch oven cooking. Do you have a fear of heights? Sign up for the rappelling class and conquer it! The April 2012 Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) workshop is now accepting registrations.

The workshop introduces women to outdoors skills in an enjoyable, non-threatening environment with expert instructors. Classes are held during the day, and the evenings are filled with fun and entertainment like night hikes, fly tying and motivational speakers.

Other classes offered include horsemanship, geocaching, wilderness medicine, birding and hiking.

“BOW is about much more than hunting and fishing or even camping and paddling,” says Linda Dightmon, coordinator for the program. “It is all about learning to appreciate our wild lands and wildlife and how to help conserve them.”

Participants stay in rustic cabins, but there are showers and bathrooms in each cabin. One great thing about this camp is that a woman can try a new sport without buying all of the equipment. The only thing the participant needs to bring is her personal stuff, a good attitude and a willingness to learn.

Class materials, food and lodging are all included in the $245 registration fee.

For more information, a schedule of classes, and a registration form, call the Arizona Wildlife Federation office at (480) 644-0077, email or visit the Web site: www.azwild

Many women can do all the things mentioned better than men. When will you have a class for them?
