CONCORD, NH – New Hampshire’s Becoming an Outdoors Woman Program (BOW) has reluctantly had to cancel its large-format Fall BOW Weekend to ensure the health and safety of its attendees and instructors in the wake of the COVID-19 public health emergency. Plans for an all-new flagship Fall BOW Weekend are underway with an exciting and re-imagined lineup of courses for 2021 already in development.
But there will still be opportunities for women to explore new outdoor skills this year including a deep sea fishing excursion and an introduction to deer hunting. Application forms and brochures will be published at www.nhbow.com when registration opens for each class. Sign up as soon as possible after each program’s registration opens as courses fill quickly.
