Not so long ago, women were as familiar with the wilderness as men. They, too, were hunters, gathers, anglers, farmers, and ranchers. Only recently women have moved indoors and strayed from their roots – their connection to the natural world.

WOW puts women and girls back in touch with the outdoors through our uniquely applicable workshops that will enrich your spirit and boost your confidence. As a Washington Outdoor Woman you will be ready to own your next adventure…
