Washington Outdoor Women’s (WOW) mission is to teach the traditional outdoor skills of fishing, hunting, and shooting to women and girls. Through these and other wilderness skills, women and girls learn to enjoy and respect the outdoors and understand the significance of passing these traditions on to the next generation. We are all called to be responsible stewards of our state’s natural resources.

WOW’s vision is to help women and girls access the outdoors. Confidence is often a factor in keeping people away from outdoor pursuits, but it is also a key ingredient in being comfortable in the natural world.

Our hope is that by developing a satisfying connection with nature and the knowledge and ethics to participate with a “can-do” attitude, women will share their respect and concern for the outdoors with future generations.

WOW Team

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!
