CONCORD, NH – The Becoming an Outdoors Woman (BOW) program is offering a one-day workshop for women who want to be prepared to find their way in the outdoors. Learn how to use a compass, read a topographic map, and then pair both tools to find your way through the woods. Also learn how to use a hand-held Global Positioning System (GPS) unit and compare its use to a map and compass on a moderately wooded course.

The workshop will take place October 5 from 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. at the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department’s Owl Brook Hunter Education Center in Holderness, NH. Participants must be 18 years of age or older.

“Beyond BOW” workshops are in-depth sessions designed to expand on the offerings of the traditional Becoming an Outdoors Woman fall and winter programs, helping women gain the skills needed to participate in outdoor activities on their own.
