News & Events
WOW is a program dedicated to teaching the traditional
outdoor skills of fishing, hunting, and shooting. 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. WOW is an outdoor skills program
designed especially for women and girls. And by addressing outdoor
ethics, WOW's intent is to develop values equal to skills.
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 reverence and respect for the outdoors
with everyone, and especially with the children and young adults they
know and influence. It is also our hope that these future generations
will embrace and continue the outdoor traditions and skills passed down
from their families

The WOW Team and Interns volunteer their time, energy, enthusiasm, and hard
work every year to ensure the workshops run smoothly by taking care
of all the little things months in advance that you as participants
don't have to worry about. Without them, WOW would not be what
it is today.
