If you'd been hoping to learn outdoorsy skills like bow-hunting and wild food foraging, you're in luck - there's a class for that in Central NY.

The Department of Environmental Conservation offers the classes called Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) and Beyond BOW." According to the DEC, these programs are designed to teach women outdoor skills, providing hands-on instruction in outdoor skills such as fishing, shooting, archery, hunting, trapping, outdoor photography, map and compass, survival, camping, canoeing, and outdoor cooking.

Becoming an Outdoors-Woman workshops are designed primarily for women who have little or no experience with outdoor activities. These are three-day workshops that offer many different classes over the course of a weekend.

There's also yoga, because of course. 

Registration is now open for the class, which takes place in Central NY from September 7-9, 2018 at Greek Peak Mountain Resort near Cortland, NY. The registration fee is $370 per person. More than 40 different outdoor classes are being offered. The application deadline is June 28. 

A lottery will be held to pick the 125 participants.

You can read more about the program and fill out an application by going to the DEC's website - www.dec.ny.gov

This is the kind of class that practically guarantees your survival during the zombie apocalypse - and means you could survive off the land if society after fell apart. Or guarantee your win on Survivor.  Maybe the DEC should change the name of the class to Walking Dead Training.
