Becoming an Outdoors-Woman and Beyond BOW (BBOW) is a non-profit educational program offering hands-on workshops to women of all ages and fitness levels. Developed by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, these workshops are hosted at various locations in the state and allow participants to develop hunting, fishing, boating and other outdoor recreation skills, while also providing insight into the management and preservation of the natural, historical and cultural resources of Georgia. These sessions provide novices and more experienced participants enough knowledge and experience to pursue their outdoors interests at the conclusion of the workshops!
