Registration for the fall Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) workshop opened on Aug. 1 for first-time attendees and Aug. 7 for both first-timers and those who have previously attended. The event takes place at the 4-H Center near Columbiana, Alabama, on Oct. 6-8.

Designed for women ages 18 years or older, the three-day workshop offers handson instruction in a fun, outdoors setting. Participants can choose four classes from more than 50 courses such as backyard wildlife, camp cooking, map and compass, camping, mountain biking, shooting sports, fishing, hunting, canoeing, nature photography, archery, ATV handling, bird watching, boat handling and more.

BOW coordinator Marisa Futral said the classes are perfect for attendees who are new to the outdoors. “There are many ladies who have not been exposed to these outdoor activities and are apprehensive about trying them,” she said. “BOW is ideal for those women because everything is taught at a beginner level.”

The registration fee for BOW is $275, which covers meals, dormitory-style lodging, program materials and instruction. For more information about this fall’s workshop including a list of classes and class descriptions, visit

“Enrollment is limited, and classes fill up pretty fast,” Futral said. “Those interested in attending BOW should register as soon as possible to make sure they get the classes they want.”
