Our primary goal is to raise funds to purchase equipment and supplies that
can be used by BOW participants at the BOW workshops.
We also provide scholarships for BOW participants when needed.
Texas Parks & Wildlife's Becoming an Outdoors-Woman workshops provide an atmosphere where women feel comfortable learning new skills associated with hunting, fishing, and other outdoor activities, in a supportive and non-threatening environment.
Workshops span a weekend, usually beginning on Friday around noon and lasting through Sunday noon. The weekend is divided into four sessions and you pick the classes in which you'd like to participate. Typically, 6-8 classes per session are offered.
Class topics are diverse but can be divided into three areas: shooting sports, fishing, and non-harvest activities (like camping, kayaking, and plant identification). As much as possible the classes are taught with the "hands-on" approach and equipment is provided.
