Sponsored by the Department of Natural Resources, the weekend event lets women improve their outdoor skills in a relaxed, noncompetitive atmosphere. Instruction will be offered in more than two dozen activities, including cross-country skiing, archery, winter camping and shelter building, fly tying, and wilderness first aid.

BOW participants stay and take their classes at Bay Cliff Health Camp near Big Bay. Food, lodging and most materials are included.

This year marks the 19th winter gathering. Officials say as many as 100 women have attended the program in the past.

Becoming an Outdoors Woman takes place February 21-23rd. For more information go to
