Becoming an Outdoors-Woman



Becoming an Outdoors-Woman workshops are designed primarily for women with an interest in learning skills usually associated with hunting, fishing and other outdoor endeavors. Although they are open to anyone 18 or older, the workshops are tailored primarily to women who have never tried these activities or who are beginners hoping to improve their skills.
