If your New Year's resolution is to learn a new winter sport, or to get more involved in outdoor activities, then a weekend workshop hosted by Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks may be just what you need to get started.
The Women's Winter Skills Workshop is scheduled for Feb. 18-20 at the University of Montana's Lubrecht Forest, 30 miles east of Missoula off U.S. Highway 200.
At the two-day workshop, participants may choose classes on ice fishing, cross-country skiing, winter survival, snowmobiling, avalanche awareness, snowshoeing, winter camping, animal identification, or winter biatholon.
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 the skills of those who already pursue some winter outdoor activities.
For more information on the workshop, or to receive a registration packet, call FWP's Liz Lodman in Helena at (406) 444-2615 or e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
