The Michigan DNR is helping women hone their outdoor skills.
Becoming an Outdoorswoman (BOW) is a non-competitive program for women who want to improve their outdoor abilities.
The program is coming to Marquette County September 10th-12th and registration is now open.
“This definitely fits under the broader mission [of the DNR],” said BOW Program Coordinator Michelle Zellar. “We need to know what you need,” she continued. “What kind of resources, classes, and skills can enhance your ability to be outdoors.”
Activities covered during the program include fishing, rock climbing, geocaching, shooting sports, hammock camping, and much more.
Zellar added that the networking and relationships that come from the program are unparalleled, saying the energy is contagious. All staff members are volunteers, and all programs are listed on the DNR website.
