Becoming An Outdoors-womanworkshop Scheduled For August


Friday, June 20, 1997

This year's "Becoming an Outdoors-Woman" workshop, hosted by Fish, Wildlife & Parks for the fourth year, is scheduled for August 1-3 at Beaver Creek Park, a camp in Havre, Montana.

At the three-day workshop, women will learn the basics of fishing, shotgun and rifle shooting, archery, and outdoor cooking skills, as well as wilderness survival and map and compass skills. The workshop is designed for women over 18 years of age who: have never tried hunting or fishing, but would like to learn; are beginning hunters or anglers who would like to improve their skills; have some outdoor skills, but would like to learn new ones, or; are looking for the company of like-minded women.

The workshop is limited to 100 participants. Registrations will be accepted until the workshop is full or through August 1.

For more information or to receive a registration packet, call FWP's Lorraine Karwaski in Helena at (406) 444-3188. Women from Montana and out of state are welcome to register.
