Try something new! B.O.W. activities are for you if you've never tried them before and want to learn; if you're a beginner looking to improve your skills; or if you're familiar with some outdoor activities but want new challenges. Though designed primarily for women, the program is an opportunity for anyone 18 or older to explore new outdoor interests.

New Hampshire's Becoming an Outdoors-Woman program is co-sponsored by the N.H. Fish and Game Department and the N.H. Wildlife Federation.
