Friday, June 28, 2002

Education

Learn to build a survival shelter, cast a fly rod, shoot a bow and arrow or cook up a Dutch-oven treat during the “Becoming an Outdoors-Woman” (BOW) workshop this summer. Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is sponsoring the 9th annual BOW summer workshop August 9-11.

These popular workshops provide women an opportunity to learn outdoor skills such as fishing, shotgun and rifle shooting, canoeing, map and compass reading, backpacking and more.

The workshop, which is geared toward beginners and stresses hands-on learning experiences, will be held at the Lubrecht Forest camp east of Missoula. The fee is approximately $190, including class instruction, meals and lodging.

Partial scholarships are available. Teachers who attend the workshop can receive OPI continuing education credit. The workshop is designed for women but is open to anyone 18 years of age and over with a desire to learn new skills.

To receive more information, provide your name and mailing address to the BOW Coordinator at FWP-BOW, P.O. Box 200701, Helena, MT 59620 (406-444-2615); or e-mail Liz Lodman at: llodman@state.mt.us.
