HOLDERNESS, New Hampshire — Women looking for a different kind of Valentine's Day celebration might want to register for the Fish and Game Department's Becoming an Outdoors-Woman workshop.
The daylong workshop — scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 14 — offers a choice of ice fishing, winter outdoor survival skills, snowmobiling for beginners, tracking wildlife on snowshoes and target shooting on snowshoes.
Participants choose one activity to focus on at the department's Owl Brook Hunter Education Center in Holderness. The $55 fee covers the workshop, lunch and most equipment use.
Participants must be at least 18 years old. For the first time, the department is offering a discounted registration fee of $25 for those ages 18-25.
Registration forms are now available at http://www.nhbow.com. Completed registrations must be mailed to the department. The program is capped at 70 participants and fills up fast.
New Hampshire BOW programs are co-sponsored by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department and the New Hampshire Wildlife Federation — a nonprofit group that advocates for the promotion and protection of hunting, fishing and trapping, as well as the conservation of fish and wildlife habitat.
BOW programs have been offered in New Hampshire for more than 20 years.
