The 15th annual "Becoming an Outdoors-Woman" workshop, sponsored by Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks, will be held July 11 - 13 at the Lubrecht Experimental Forest near Missoula.

 The hands-on workshop will offer opportunities to build a survival shelter, cast a fly rod, use a map and compass, learn to shoot a rifle and cook a Dutch-oven treat. 

New this year is a partnership with the University of Montana's Rural Institute on Disabilities MonTECH program to supply adaptive equipment at the workshop.  The adaptive devices will enable women with physical disabilities to participate in the rifle, archery and fishing classes.

The fee of  $200 includes class instruction, meals and lodging. Partial scholarships are available. Space is limited and classes are filled as registrations are received.

Teachers who attend the workshop can receive continuing education credit from the Office of Public Instruction.  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 and to register, provide your name and mailing address to the BOW Coordinator at: FWP-BOW, P.O. Box 200701, Helena, MT  59620; call 406-444-2615; or email Liz Lodman at: llodman@mt.gov .
