Becoming an Outdoors Woman (BOW) offers
hands-on, outdoor workshops held in a safe, supportive atmosphere with
patient, enthusiastic instructors. No experience or special equipment
is necessary. BOW is for adult women of all ages and fitness levels.
The program began in 1991, offered through the University of
Wisconsin-Stevens Point. The first workshop, held at Treehaven Field
Station near Tomahawk, filled to capacity with over 100 participants.
This successful program, founded by Dr. Christine Thomas, has become
popular in more than 40 states and several Canadian provinces.
Today, Wisconsin's BOW program is still going strong, and we still
hold multi-course workshops twice a year at Treehaven Field Station as
well as Beyond BOW events almost every month! In 2011, we celebrated the
20th anniversary of the program, and with the response we get from our
participants, we expect this is only the beginning!
