Women who want to be prepared to survive in an outdoor emergency situation can sign up for a one-day “Becoming an Outdoors-Woman” (BOW) Wilderness Survival workshop taking place on Sunday, April 22, 2012, from 8:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Owl Brook Hunter Education Center, at 387 Perch Pond Road (off Route 175) in Holderness, N.H.

To sign up, fill out a print-and-mail application available at http://www.nhbow.com or call Lisa Collins at 603-271-3214 to request an application. Workshop fee of $25 is due with registration and includes program materials, use of equipment, and lunch. Space is limited, so please register soon if you are interested in attending. Participants must be 18 years of age or older.

Taught by New Hampshire Fish and Game Department Conservation Officers, the wilderness survival course will help participants learn survival techniques such as how to find wood and build a fire; protect yourself from hypothermia; build a shelter for protection against the elements; signal for help; use knives and tools safely; find and purify a water supply; prepare a meal in the outdoors; and know what should be in your survival kit.

This workshop is a “Beyond BOW” course. These in-depth workshops are designed to expand on the offerings of traditional Becoming an Outdoors-Woman fall and winter programs, helping women gain the skills to participate in outdoor activities on their own.

N.H. Becoming an Outdoors-Woman programs are co-sponsored by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department (http://www.wildnh.com) and the New Hampshire Wildlife Federation (http://www.nhwf.org).
