Women in the Outdoors

Passport to Texas from Texas Parks and Wildlife

Women can gain a lot from outdoors experiences.

I think women are strong and they’re smart. And I think we’re stronger and smarter than sometimes we give ourselves credit for being.

Krista Allen is a participant turned instructor of the Becoming an Outdoors Woman workshops.

And I think the outdoor experience help women realize their strengths because the skills we learn help you grow as a person and those skills have application in their everyday lives.

Allen believes that women finding passion outdoors will encourage them to share it with others. Your most effective doing things that your passionate it about and when you find an outdoor activity that you love and you’re passionate about, you’re going to pass that on to other people. Showing the outdoors to people, I think, is one of the coolest things that you can do.

Once women discover an outdoor activity they’re passionate about they’ll find new value in state parks.

If you’re a mountain biker or if you’re a cyclist you have a huge appreciation for the out of doors and the value of having those sort of spaces and preserving those sort of spaces.
