Women of the Woods or WoW is a group of women who are passionate about the natural world.  We would like to deepen our spiritual connection with woods and other natural places.  We have created and are expanding a community of women who want to be deeply connected to nature. We know that by fostering a personal relationship with nature we can develop and enhance environmental stewardship. We support each other in our individual and collaborative efforts to preserve this beautiful planet.

Invitation: Come with us as we joyfully join our energies and strengthen our spiritual bond with the natural world so we can transmit our love and reverence of mother earth to others. We are creating a community of women who love the earth and who support each other in our individual and collaborative efforts to preserve this beautiful planet.
