The luncheon speaker will be Dana Norsworthy, Biologist Supervisor with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, Office of Wildlife, Hunter Education, and the BOW coordinator. Dana will provide an overview of the popular Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) program, which introduces women, 18 and older, to the outdoors through hands-on outdoor educational activities. It focuses on providing opportunities for women to learn skills that enhance and encourage participation in hunting, fishing and other outdoor activities. She will share stories and observations about the impact this program is having on increased participation in outdoor recreation. The BOW program and Dana Norsworthy’s leadership received the Conservation Educator of the Year Award for 2015.
