Registration is open for a unique three-day workshop that helps women enjoy the outdoors with confidence.
The Becoming an Outdoors Woman workshop provides the ultimate outdoor experience and runs from Sept. 9-11.
"This is a great program for women who want to learn new skills while experiencing all that Nova Scotia's great outdoors has to offer," said Sterling Belliveau, Minister of Fisheries and Aquaculture.
Participants are introduced to archery, shooting and firearms safety during the weekend program. The workshop also includes classes in trout and fly-fishing, bow hunting, trapping and snaring, wilderness camping, kayaking, nature photography, geo-caching and wilderness survival.
The workshop will be held at Mount Traber Bible Camp, Cooks Brook, in Musquodoboit Valley.
Becoming an Outdoors Woman was created in 1991 to encourage women to take part in outdoor activities. The workshop is offered in most provinces and states throughout North America.
BOW Nova Scotia Association partners with the province, the Nova Scotia Federation of Anglers and Hunters and Cross Country Ski Nova Scotia to offer workshops each fall and every other winter.
Applicants must be at least 18 years old to register. Deadline for registration is Aug. 3, or until the program is full. The $229 program fee includes HST, meals, accommodations, instruction and equipment.
