BOW LogoBecoming an Outdoors-Woman

BOW is an educational opportunity that teaches hands-on outdoor skills to adult women in a safe, supportive atmosphere. BOW workshops are designed especially for women who are beginners, so no experience is necessary. Equipment and
instruction are provided by patient, enthusiastic instructors. We strive to offer a variety of topics in our workshops, balanced between hunting/shooting, fishing and non-consumptive (kayaking, camping, etc.) activities.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is committed to introducing teachers, youth, adults and families to exciting ways they can learn more about our diverse fish and wildlife resources. But, it's not just about learning, it's about getting outside and having fun too.

We believe that current and future generations of Floridians are more likely to aid in the protection and enhancement of these resources if they understand and appreciate them, and that children and adults who spend time recreating in the outdoors learn to love and better understand Florida's unique and varied environment.

Through education or recreation experiences people can become more interested in knowing the role they play in conserving and enhancing our resources. With that knowledge, they may become better stewards of the land and our fish and wildlife resources, making more informed choices about their daily activities that affect these resources and helping to influence others to cherish and enhance our natural heritage.
