Becoming an Outdoors Woman began as a course at the University of Wisconsin looking into the reasons more women don’t participate in many outdoors activities, such as hunting and fishing. It was determined that women preferred to learn these skills in a non-competitive atmosphere along with other women. Professor Christine Thomas ran a workshop the following year that quickly filled to capacity. More than double the number accepted were interested in attending.
This led to the mission of Becoming an Outdoors Woman which is to give women the knowledge to be active in the outdoors, and through the BOW program help women gain the confidence needed to engage in all types of outdoor activities!
