Friday, April 28, 2000

Teachers who attend Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks "Becoming an Outdoors Woman (BOW) workshops this summer can receive continuing education credits through the Office of Public Instruction. The two workshops will run July 31-August 2 and August 4-6.

The popular BOW workshops provide women opportunities to learn outdoor skills such as fishing, fly-tying, archery, shotgun and rifle shooting, canoeing, map and compass reading, plant identification, and Dutch oven cooking. Geared to beginners, the workshops stress hands-on learning experiences. While they are designed for women, the sessions are open to anyone 18 years of age and over with a desire to learn new skills.

This summer's session will be held at the Lubrecht Forest camp east of Missoula. The fee is $185, including meals and lodging.

To receive more information, provide your name and mailing address to BOW Coordinator Liz Lodman at FWP-BOW, P.O. Box 200701, Helena, MT 59620-0701, or call 406-444-2615 or email
