TOWN is an off shoot of the Becoming An Outdoors Woman (BOW) workshops initiated by Texas Parks and Wildlife. Currently, there are groups in several major cities across Texas. While each group is independent, they share the same mission: To provide all women the opportunity to participate in outdoor activities in a safe, non-threatening and supportive environment. Membership is open to all women 18 and older and you may attend 2 meetings or 2 outings before deciding to join.
