The Becoming an Outdoor Woman Program's annual three-day workshop and camp will be held near Bigfork this year Aug. 17-19.
"BOW participants will be excited to hear about this beautiful new site for the annual BOW camp," said Liz Lodman, Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks BOW coordinator.
The summer BOW workshop offers opportunities to learn about and practice a variety of new outdoor skills. Participants attend four classes of their choice taught by volunteer instructors in a supportive, safe, and non-competitive learning environment.
The 2012 BOW workshop will offer training on basic gun handling, rifle, shotgun, fishing, map and compass reading, canoeing, plant identification, outdoor survival and more.
Book lovers can participate in the BOW Book Club on Friday evening, Aug.17 for a discussion of A Sand County Almanac by Aldo Leopold.
The workshop registration fee of $175 - $205 includes lodging, meals, 4 classes, instructional materials, and equipment.
To register, call Liz Lodman at 406-444-9940, or go to the FWP website at fwp.mt.gov on the Education page and select Becoming An Outdoors Woman to print a registration form.
