The event is held at the historic Old Timbers Lodge. Outdoor Women at Big Oaks is a one-day program designed to offer women ages 12 and over the opportunity to gain valuable in-the-field skills in an environment that encourages fun and success in the outdoors.
The award- winning program teaches outdoor skills to women through a variety of courses including fishing, archery, shooting sports, wild game cooking, falconry, canoeing/kayaking, bird watching and much more.
