In an effort to help more women and girls get outside and continue the growing trend of women in the outdoors a group of sportswomen created Women of the Maine Outdoors a non-profit organization to provide funding possibilities for all fellow Maine women and girls who want to try any outdoor activ- ity. Any woman or girl who is interested in camping ATVing fishing trapping hunting etc. is eligible to apply for a scholarship to cover the cost of classes such as those offered by Women and our Woods Becoming an Outdoors-Woman and the National Turkey Foundation. Scholarships will also go beyond introductory classes to courses including Wilderness First Aid hand gun safety and for girls conservation camp. Perhaps one of the coolest opportunities is for women to obtain their Maine Guides License with a scholarship from the group. Women of the Maine Outdoors goal is to see more women and girls feel comfortable going out on an early morning turkey hunt or sitting in that bear blind by themselves. Along with this new group comes a fantastic partnership Women of the Maine Outdoors and the Sportsmans Alliance of Maine have partnered to become the go-to resource for women interested in the outdoors. This state-wide partnership will allow women and girls to get connected with the programs events and learning opportunities offered through SAM and its partners while having the funding support of Women of the Maine Outdoors. Cathy DeMer- chant chair of the SAM board couldnt be more excited The SAM Board is incredibly pleased to be partnering with Women of the Maine Outdoors This is a natural fit for our organization and will enable us to further strengthen our core mission by providing educational opportunities to what is now the fastest growing segment of our membership. In addition the new partnership will allow us to strengthen the American heritage and tradition of hunting trapping and fishing. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial partnership Here is how you can help and get involved As a non-profit organization Women of the Maine Outdoors relies on funding from outfitters rod gun clubs businesses and individuals to offer scholarships from 5 - 500.
