LDWF, LAWFF to Hold Next Mini Becoming An Outdoors Woman Workshops on Camping – Louisiana Style!

Published 11:30 am Sunday, January 16, 2022

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) and Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Foundation (LAWFF) will hold the next Mini Becoming an Outdoor Woman workshop, Basic Camping Skills, on March 12 at the Waddill Wildlife Refuge.

This workshop will teach what to take and leave behind when camping. There will be discussions around the equipment best suited for your camping needs, such as tents, sleep systems and cook stoves. You will also learn how to put up a tent and build a fire with little to no impact on the environment.

The workshop, for women 18 and older, is from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. and is $35. All equipment will be provided and this course is a mixture of classroom instruction and hands-on activities. Registration for this event is limited.

Mini BOW is a program designed to introduce women 18 or older to outdoor activities. A branch from the highly popular “Becoming an Outdoors-Woman workshop”, the Mini BOW provides the same introductory level hands-on outdoor educational courses, but on a smaller scale.

Come prepared for the workshops rain or shine. All Mini BOW workshops are limited and on a first-come, first-serve basis.
