If you are (or know) a woman who's interested in discovering what the outdoors has to offer, and you live in Arizona, there's a terrific opportunity coming up in a couple of weeks. The Arizona Wildlife Federation, in partnership with the Arizona Game and Fish Department, will conduct its next Becoming an Outdoors Woman (BOW) workshop April 17-19 at Friendly Pines Camp in Prescott.

The workshop introduces like-minded women (18 and older) to outdoors skills in an enjoyable, no-pressure setting with expert instructors. Horsemanship, outdoor photography, archery, fly-fishing, Dutch-oven cooking, shooting and birding are among the more than 30 courses offered during the day. The evenings are filled with fun and entertainment, like night hikes, fly-tying and motivational speakers.

Lodging will be provided in rustic cabins, with five to seven campers per room using bunk beds. Campers must provide their own bedding and towels. Sleeping bags are highly recommended. Full bathrooms with electricity are available in each cabin.

The workshop fee is $250 ($300 with horsemanship) and includes all course materials, meals and lodging. In addition to learning outdoors skills, building self-confidence or just spending an adventurous getaway with girlfriends, a two-day workshop in the high country could make for a perfect early Mother's Day gift.
