Montana’s Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) program is offering a “Jane Deere” workshop specifically for farm and ranch women. The workshop is set for June 9 – 11 at the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Ranch near Dupuyer.
Women who attend the Jane Deere workshop will gain hands-on experience in identifying wildlife, target shooting, plant identification, using a GPS, nature journaling, bird identification, using chain saws and more.
Since 1994 the BOW program has been offering workshops in Montana that provide women the opportunity to learn outdoor skills in a supportive setting. The Jane Deere workshop offers additional skills training related to wildlife and land stewardship.
The Jane Deere workshop is sponsored by Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks, the Boone & Crockett Club and the Teton and Cascade County Extension Service. The workshop, open to anyone 18 years of age and older, will begin Friday evening, June 9, and conclude Sunday, June 11, at noon. All food, lodging and class materials are provided for a small fee. Scholarships are available to those in need of assistance.For information and to receive registration forms, contact BOW Coordiantor Liz Lodman at 406-444-2615.
