Women and communities in Washington State are empowered by, connected to, and caring for, the land that sustains them.
To teach traditional outdoor skills to women and girls, and that by doing so, we cultivate and empower a unique community of natural resource stewards.
WOW helps women and girls rediscover their outdoor instincts. By developing a deep and satisfying connection with nature, understanding outdoor ethics, and growing personal confidence, women and girls become stewards of – and advocates for – our natural resources, ensuring that wildlife and wild places in Washington State will be here for future generations to enjoy.
This was outstanding one-on-one teaching and support. WOW makes me want to get out and put all this learning to work!
I went knowing only one woman. But I shared many different moments of understanding, insight, humor and challenge with many, many women.
A wonderful experience – I learned more this weekend about fishing tackle and compass readings than I’ve learned in the past 5 years by trial and error.
The WOW Team and Interns volunteer their time, energy, enthusiasm, and hard work every year to ensure each workshop runs smoothly. Without them, WOW would not be what it is today!
A special THANK YOU to the WOW instructors for their unconditional support, precious (volunteered) time, and limitless energy. They are the mainstays of WOW. We enthusiastically celebrate these women, their unique teaching experiences, and the inspiring factor they bring to the WOW program.
