Fall Workshop Planned For Outdoors Women

By Staff | Aug 12, 2009

Women who want to learn new outdoor skills are invited to register for the fall Becoming an Outdoors Woman Workshop, to be held at Watoga State Park in Pocahontas County Sept. 11-13. The workshop is sponsored by The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources.

“Have you ever wanted to learn a new skill but have never had the opportunity to try?” asks event coordinator Billie Shearer. “Or, have you wanted to take up an outdoor sport but were afraid to purchase all the equipment and then find out later that you hated it?

“If so, the West Virginia Becoming an Outdoors Woman Program is definitely for you! Women who are at least 18 years old can learn new outdoor skills in a safe, non-threatening atmosphere.”

In the fall WV BOW workshop schedule, approximately 30 classes are being offered including biking, shooting, fishing, camping, fly tying and outdoor cooking to list only a few. Registration is now open with a fee of $150, which covers lodging, some meals and class materials during the workshop.

For more information or to register for the workshop, call 304-558-2771 or visit email billieshearer@wvdnr.gov. The registration form can be downloaded at www.wvdnr.gov/hunting/bow.shtm.
