Investing in the future of hunting and shooting.
Saturday, May 21, 2016, Rick Davenport, Director for Mzuri Wildlife Foundation was on hand to present a check for $5,000 to the California Waterfowl Association to support its Becoming an Outdoors Woman Program.
CWA integrated the Becoming an Outdoors Women (CA) non-profit program into California Waterfowl Hunting Heritage programs in 2015. CWA has effectively “rescuing” the efforts of BOW-CA, a program formerly of the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.
New Events to Involve Women
During the 2016-17 fiscal year, CWA will host events throughout California including a sporting clays/fun shoot, 2-4 waterfowl hunts, 1-2 pheasant hunts, a fly-fishing clinic and a multi-course workshop. Total opportunities offered will be for between 200-250 attendees. Specific dates and total events is still currently in the works. CWA has created a web page that will include these events as they are finalized. www.calwaterfowl.org/cwa-bow.
Lots to learn
The women picture here learned rifle, shotgun and archery during the days activities. Many were there for the first time.
