By the time you are reading this, I will be somewhere in the Bessey National Forest helping with this year’s main Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BO-W) workshop.  By my count, this will be the nineteenth year I have helped with that program.  This video will give you an idea of what happens over the weekend.  We have a lot of fun and learn a thing or three in the process!

If you are a lady and you are reading this, sorry, you are too late to sign up for this year’s weekend.  Here is a brochure that will give you an idea of the variety of classes offered each fall, and if you look close you can probably figure out which classes I will be teaching, BO-W 2015 Brochure.  Watch the main Nebraska BO-W webpage for more information and more class offerings and start planning now for next fall!

Group photo from last year. Look close, I am hiding in the back.
