Beyond BOW events are targeted at providing the next step in practicing newfound skills outside of the initial workshop experience. We recognize that becoming a confident, independent outdoors person is a process that is developed over time.
Beyond BOWs are venues to practice and hone the basic skills learned at a BOW weekend workshop in the real world, while still having supportive instructors on hand to coach and encourage them. Beyond BOWs build on the beginner’s skills, teach more advanced skills, and may be conducted almost entirely in an outdoors setting. Beyond BOWs may also focus on a skill that takes more time to teach than is available in a traditional BOW weekend workshop, such as knife making, rod building, saltwater fishing, or small and large game hunting.
Beyond BOWs may take place in one afternoon, occur over a weekend, or take place over several evenings. While BOW weekend workshops are only for adults over the age of 18, Beyond BOWs may occasionally be tailored to families.
BOW and Beyond BOW offerings are made possible by a cooperative effort between the Alaska Department of Fish & Game and our foundation, the Outdoor Heritage Foundation of Alaska. For More Info: Click Here
