The popular Becoming and Outdoors Woman Program from Parks and Wildlife offers weekend workshops to help women 18 years and older to develop or hone their outdoor skills.

05—The fall workshop – when registration opened – it filled up within ten days.

Heidi Rao coordinates the program and says the next workshop is April 10 through 12 in Palacios. Trained staff guides participants through a variety of activities.

17—A third of the activities that we offer are hunting and shooting and wildlife based learning. A third of the activities are fishing and boating and water based activities. And the final third of the activities are the non-consumptive such as bird-watching, astronomy, camping and backpacking.

Attendees choose activities in which to participate. Heidi adds it is a safe, supportive environment where women engage the natural world. And if the April Becoming an Outdoor Woman Workshop interests you, better contact Heidi soon.

08—From the people that could not make it into the fall workshop, we already have a waiting list growing by the day to get into the event.

So what makes this such a popular program?

02—It’s fun. It’s absolutely fun.
