I would highly recommend our Becoming an Outdoors-Woman program, spend some time looking at what is offered, http://outdoornebraska.ne.gov/Educat...nformation.asp . The main workshop is held at Halsey each fall and that would be a great place to start. After that there are a bunch of other "Beyond-BO-W" activities which are more specific and more technical; there is some information listed there for those activities as well.
All of us have spent years learning these things and are still learning, so it is difficult to tell you what you might need to know immediately. The "beginner's corner" that has been recommended already is excellent, make sure to spend some time there. May I also suggest this, http://outdoornebraska.ne.gov/blogs/...5/kids-system/ ?
