WATERBURY, VT – The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department, in partnership with the Central Vermont Longbeards, is holding a Becoming an Outdoors Woman Weekend on August 22-24, 2008 at the Buck Lake Green Mountain Conservation Camp in Woodbury. Media Contacts: Ann Shangraw or Mark Scott, 802-241-3700

Reservations are on a first-come first-serve basis, so Fish & Wildlife urges you to register early. The weekend-long event will give women the opportunity to learn paddling, fishing, tracking, shooting sports, archery, and wilderness survival skills.

Becoming an Outdoors Woman (BOW) is a national women’s program which began in 1991. Programs are coordinated by many state fish and wildlife agencies and sportsman’s clubs throughout the nation. The program goal is to provide opportunities for women to learn skills that enhance and encourage participation in hunting, angling and other outdoor activities.

A $90 registration fee covers lodging, meals, equipment, and a T-shirt.
