About BOW

Becoming an Outdoors Woman (BOW) is a national nonprofit educational outreach program that offers outdoors skills workshops in 38 states and 6 Canadian provinces. Colorado Wildlife Federation (CWF) offers the program here, in Colorado, customized for Colorado's unique outdoor recreational opportunities. The nationally recognized BOW program has proven to be a successful way to help women gain confidence and skills in the outdoors and introduce them to the pleasures and benefits of activities such as hunting, angling, trap and skeet, archery and much more! CWF's BOW evaluations over the past 5 years reveal time and again that women who had never hunted, fished, or even camped before attending BOW, now feel comfortable doing so and actively participate in both consumptive and non-consumptive outdoor activities. Register for our upcoming BOW events below! No experience is necessary, and we would love to have you!


BOW strives to be a welcoming, safe, and inclusive place for all women. If you would like to learn more about how BOW is working to increase diversity and be a more inclusive space where all women feel a sense of belonging, visit our Bridges to BOW page.
