The Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition is offering a new program with a Women on the Water (WOW) river guide training.

The next session of WOW is set to take place July 19 -21 and is a free opportunity for young women aged 15 – 19 to gain experience on the local river systems from some highly skilled female river experts local to the region.

Participants are accompanied on the river by an all-female safety and guiding crew.

The weekend-long course will be an introduction to river rafting basics and safety and will include discussions on local ecology and regional environmental issues.
