The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has openings available for its Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) workshop near Tallahassee for women who want to spend a weekend learning a variety of outdoor activities.

The three-day workshop takes place Oct. 8-10 at Camp Wallwood on the Gadsden County side of Lake Talquin.  The program begins Friday at 10 a.m. and ends Sunday with lunch.

Although designed with women in mind, the workshop is open to everyone 18 and older who wants to improve their outdoor skills and enjoy a few recreational activities.  During four, three-and-one-half-hour sessions, the workshop teaches skills associated with fishing, hunting and other forms of outdoor recreation, at all levels of physical activity.

The BOW Program offers a fun and supportive atmosphere for participants wishing to try new things and enjoy the camaraderie of others who want to learn about Florida's great outdoors.

The cost for the program is $175, and there are a few discounted slots available for low-income participants, single parents and college students.

For more information on the BOW workshop and how to register, visit MyFWC.com/BOW or call 850-413-0085.
