The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources announces that the spring Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) Workshop will be held April 11-14, 2014, at Tygart Lake State Park near Grafton in Taylor County.

“Have you ever wanted to learn a new skill but have never had the opportunity to try?” asked Waest Virginia BOW Coordinator Billie Shearer of the DNR Wildlife Resources Section. “Or, have you wanted to take up an outdoor sport but were afraid to purchase all the equipment and then find out later that you hated it?  Well, the Becoming an Outdoors-Woman Program is definitely for you!”  Women who are at least 18 years old can learn a new outdoor skill at this weekend workshop.

This spring BOW Workshop offers outdoor classes that include archery, shooting, overnight camping, fly tying, fly fishing, self-defense, outdoor cooking,  and many other topics. A registration fee of $150 covers lodging, some meals, and some class materials during the workshop.

For more information or to register for the workshop, contact BOW at 304-558-2771 or  The registration form can be downloaded at
