New Jersey Outdoors Program

 
The NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife offers outdoor skills programs throughout the state that are designed to enable participants to learn about and enjoy a variety of outdoor pursuits, including fishing, shooting sports, hunting, birding, kayaking, hiking and more.

These beginner programs are geared toward women through Outdoor Women of New Jersey (OWNJ) workshops (though men can register as well) and toward families through Outdoor Families of New Jersey (OFNJ) workshops. Occasionally there will be New Jersey Outdoor Programs (NJOP) offered for both adult men and women.
