Bridges to BOW


Through Bridges to BOW, young, diverse, under-represented, BIPOC, and/or underserved women learn about, register for, and attend a BOW Program

AWF’s Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) program is one of our most popular programs and is a fantastic way to introduce the outdoors and all its wonders to the women of Arizona. However, while BOW is a fantastic learning opportunity, many young, diverse women in Arizona don’t even know that the program exists. For some who may have heard of BOW, the opportunity can seem out of reach. Registration fees, lack of experience, or the hesitancy to try something new can all serve as barriers to underrepresented young women wanting to gain experience in the outdoors. Bridges to BOW exists to break these barriers and serve as a bridge to Becoming an Outdoors-Woman.

"Attending Bridges to B.O.W was the jump start I needed to really have confidence and begin enjoying the outdoors. During my first B2B experience, I took classes on backpacking, gun safety, and wild skills. Watching the instructors and asking questions in a safe non-judgmental environment was exactly what I needed."

- Candace Banks, B2B Participant
