BOW event set for Tourist Park

MARQUETTE – Mother-daughter pairs looking to spend a little time together outdoors this summer will have the chance to do just that July 13 during a Department of Natural Resources “Becoming an Outdoors-Woman” one-day kayaking and hiking program.

The $25 workshop is open to mothers of all ages, and daughters age 10 to 17. It will take place at Tourist Park in Marquette from 9 a.m. until roughly 3:15 p.m. An on-site cookout is included in the price.

“This workshop offers a great opportunity for moms and daughters to have a little fun, learn or improve on an outdoor skill, and spend some time together in a beautiful setting,” said Sharon Pitz, DNR’s U.P. coordinator for the Becoming an Outdoors-Woman program.

“BOW class and workshop participants really enjoy themselves and walk away with a true sense of accomplishment at learning or honing an outdoor recreation skill.”

Kayaks for the event are being donated by Downwind Sports in Marquette and Houghton.
