WOW activities have been suspended. In the meantime, we’re thinking of you and hoping you can find opportunities to be outdoors while practicing safe distancing. Our connection to nature is bigger than this virus. As strong outdoor women, stay with us in spirit… 

Welcome to Washington Outdoor Women (WOW), a program of the Washington Wildlife Federation. Our program is celebrating it’s 23rd year and offers hands-on workshops dedicated to teaching women and girls traditional outdoor wilderness skills in relevant settings.

WOW Workshops connect women and girls to the outdoors and provide unforgettable experiences for all skill levels. Our instructors teach 20 different skills that have outdoor applications, from fly fishing to archery to map reading and so much more.

Through our workshops together, we gain a deeper respect for the outdoors and become responsible stewards of our state’s natural resources. We encourage you to join us!
