DNR Becoming an Outdoors Woman, Feb. 20-22

a news release of Michigan DNR

The Department of Natural Resources' Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) program has the cure for any woman (18 years and older) who is longing to get outdoors -- the traditional BOW weekend, Feb. 20-22, at the Ralph A. MacMullan Conference Center at Higgins Lake.

"This program offers classes in traditional winter activities, such as snowshoeing, ice fishing and river rafting," said Lynn Marla, BOW program coordinator, "And we're adding new classes in winter nature painting, women's self-confidence building and one designed to teach mothers and grandmothers how to get children interested in the outdoors."

"Registrations are filling quickly, but we still have room for a few more adventurous women who are looking to learn new outdoor activities and enjoy the company of other women who would rather be outdoors having fun than sitting inside and waiting for spring," Marla said.

Enrollment is limited, so register as soon as possible. For more information, visit the DNR Web site or contact Lynn Marla (517) 241-2225.

This is a great idea. The only other two people in my family that are interested in nature very much, are two of my nieces. The boys all seem to be attached to video game controllers.

Ratty- This is a great program! I was the featured speaker at a spring one in the UP last year and was very impressed. They did everything from archery, firing range, biking, GPS training, outdoor cooking, birdwatching, and even more... it's really a huge range of activities for gals who know lots to rank beginners. I had way more fun than I expected.

I wish there were a blog like this about my area!

Keely- Don't know where you are located, but you are right, there aren't many sites that try to collect outdoor topics that aren't golf, hunting, fishing... glad you enjoyed it!
