Fri Jan 29 00:00:00 MST 1999Spend a weekend in the snow learning about ice fishing, snow shoeing and winter survival. These are some of the "hot" topics covered in classes being offered this February at a winter outdoor skills workshop hosted by Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks.
The workshop is scheduled for February 19-21 at the University of Montana's Lubrecht Experimental Forest, 30 miles east of Missoula off U.S. Highway 200.
At the 1-day workshop, women also will learn winter camping skills, be exposed to the world of dog sledding and be prepared to participate in an avalanche rescue.
The workshop, an extension of FWP's highly popular "Becoming an Outdoors Woman" program, is designed to introduce adult women to new outdoor skills or to improve existing skills of those who already pursue some winter outdoor activities.
A few openings to take part in the workshop remain to be filled. For more information on the workshop, or to receive a registration packet, call FWP's Lorraine Karwaski in Helena at (406) 444-3188.
