WTIP Outdoor News Podcast
The Becoming An Outdoors Woman (BOW) program began in the early 1990s thanks to the research and foresight of a certain Dr. Christina Thomas. In addition to being a professor at the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point, Thomas is also an avid hunter and fisherman. She identified common barriers that prevented women from participating in outdoor recreational activities compared to men.
In today’s episode, BOW Coordinator Linda Bylander and Cook County’s Linda Newman share more about what the program means to women in Minnesota and its value for the future of conservation and the sporting spirit.
