Winter B.O.W. Weekend Set for Upper Peninsula

Women seeking an opportunity to develop their outdoor skills are invited to register for the Michigan Department of Natural Resources' 4th annual Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) Winter Weekend, Feb. 24-26, at the Bay Cliff Health Camp in Big Bay, which is about 30 miles north of Marquette.

Participants can select instruction from a list of nearly a dozen outdoor-related activities, including cross-country skiing, dog sledding, skijoring, snowmobiling, ice fishing, winter-shelter building and reading the winter woods. Some indoor activities also are offered, including journaling and fly tying. Professional instructors offer basic and advanced instruction tailored to the participants' individual abilities.

The $160 registration fee includes all food and lodging, as well as most equipment and supplies (except as noted in the registration materials). Participants are housed in comfortable, dorm-style facilities. The fee also includes many extra activities and evening access to the camp's group sauna.

Becoming an Outdoors-Woman workshops are for women 18 and older who wish to learn outdoor skills in a relaxed atmosphere. Those interested in participating are urged to register soon.  Registration materials and course descriptions are posted on the DNR Web site at www.michigan.gov/dnr.

For more information, contact Ann Wilson or Sharon Pitz at the DNR Marquette Operations Service Center, (906) 228-6561, or e-mail wilsoann@michigan.gov or pitzs@michigan.gov.

The DNR is committed to the conservation, protection, management, use and enjoyment of the state's natural resources for current and future generations.
