Near Deep Cove (North Vancouver), B.C.
The "Becoming an Outdoors Woman" (BOW) program is designed for women 19 years or older and provides them an opportunity to learn outdoor skills in a relaxed non-competitive atmosphere.
The BOW Weekend offers a variety of outdoor related educational workshops for participants to select from in each of three areas: shooting and hunting, fishing, and other outdoor recreation courses.
Over the course of Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon, BOW participants will attend four 3 1/2 hour pre-selected courses of their choice. Qualified Instructors conduct the courses ensuring that all participants enjoy a safe, positive, fun and educational experience and are taught in a very 'hands-on'’ way.
Each BOW weekend is an all-inclusive package; accommodation, meals, four hands-on courses and equipment are provided.

2015 BCWF Go Wild! Youth for Conservation Program
BCWF’s Go Wild! Youth for Conservation Program is back for another year! Building on the success of our workshops held in 2013 and 2014, Go Wild! is returning this summer with events in Prince George and Mission, BC in late July and early August.
Go Wild! Youth for Conservation is a leadership workshop for youth ages 13 – 17 designed to introduce youth to fish & wildlife conservation, ecology, and sustainability, and strives to inspire an interest in environmental stewardship. Participants will leave with the skills and knowledge to become involved in conservation projects making a positive impact in their home community.
As you may have already noticed, the BCWF logo has recently undergone a refresh and is sporting a new more modern look!
BCWF started the process of updating the logo in the Spring of 2014, when we surveyed our membership, volunteers, and stakeholders about what they would like to see in a refreshed logo. After extensive discussions, many focus group sessions, and several tweaks, the end result is modern, eye-catching, and reflects the diverse landscapes of our province. We hope you like it!
