BOW Weekend Adventure to Teach Women Outdoor Skills

LINCOLN – Grab a friend, your mother, daughter, sister, or colleague and go outdoors for a life-changing adventure at scenic Ponca State Park. A workshop sponsored by the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission gives women the opportunity to learn outdoor skills in a comfortable environment.

Becoming an Outdoors-Woman is a weekend getaway for women 18 years and older scheduled for Sept. 30 – Oct. 2 at Ponca. Nebraska Game and Parks is accepting registrations.

Outdoor novices get preference, but experienced outdoorswomen are invited, too. All will be taught by a staff of Nebraska Game and Parks professionals. Skills learned may be enjoyed for a lifetime.

Participants choose from a variety of activities, including hiking, canoeing, kayaking, firearm safety, fishing, fly-fishing, bowfishing, camping, rifle marksmanship, shotgunning, deer and turkey hunting, photography, bird identification and more. Plenty of social time is built into the schedule, too, while participants learn alongside like-minded women in a friendly, non-intimidating and noncompetitive environment.
