Due to Covid, camping in all forms has seen an increase be it campground with RV’s, trailers and 5th wheels or tent side camping.
It’s perhaps why the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) and Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Foundation (LAWFF) will hold a ‘Mini Becoming an Outdoor Woman’ workshop & basic camping skills, on March 12 at the Waddill Wildlife Refuge.
The workshop is meant to teach women what to take and leave behind when camping. There will be discussions around the equipment best suited for camping needs, such as tents, sleep systems and cook stoves.
Participants 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 the cost is $35.
All equipment will be provided and the 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.
