In the associated press i learned that there is a three-day workshop called “Becoming an Outdoors-Woman.” This workshop actually started 20 years ago and has spread to 40 states and some of Canada as a way for women to enjoy doing outdoor activities like camping, fishing and boating. States actually tailor their workshops to outdoor activities common in their areas and teach whatever survival skills are needed in the region. For example, in Florida the program includes courses in boating, kayaking, whitetail deer, fishing, knot tying and outdoor photography. Organizers say the sessions are so popular they usually fill up just days after they are announced.
The program began in 1991 in Wisconsin after researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point studied why women were less likely than men to participate in some outdoor activities, said Lynne Hawk, an education specialist with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and director of the Florida program.
