Winter Outdoor Programs Planned for Women

Fri, Feb  1, 2008 - By DNR

The Department of Natural Resources "Becoming an Outdoors-Woman" (BOW) program has the cure for any woman who has a case of “cabin fever” and is longing to get outdoors -- two weekend BOW programs planned for February. The first is Feb. 22-24 at Bay Cliff Health Center at Big Bay in the Upper Peninsula, and the second is Feb. 29-March 2 at the Ralph A. MacMullan Center at Higgins Lake.

“Both programs are offering traditional winter outdoor skills for women 18 years and older,” said Lynn Marla, BOW program coordinator. “Classes are offered in more than a dozen activities, including cross country skiing, snowshoeing, river rafting, cast iron cooking, ice fishing and a full range of firearms and archery classes.”

Complete details and registration forms for each three-day program are available on the DNR Web site at www.michigan.gov/dnr . Click on Education and Outreach to locate the BOW page.

“Registrations are filling quickly, but we still have room for a few more adventurous women who are looking to learn new outdoor activities and enjoy the company of the other women who would rather be outdoors having fun than sitting inside and waiting for spring,” Marla said.

Enrollment for both programs is limited, so register as soon as possible. For more information, visit the DNR Web site or contact Lynn Marla at marlal@michigan.gov or (517) 241-2225.
