Fall is a couple months away which means it will be time for the Becoming an Outdoors-Woman workshop, by the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.
Participants of the three-day workshop, Oct. 6-8, will be able to choose four classes from the more than 50 that are offered. The classes include backyard wildlife, camp cooking, map and compass, camping, mountain biking, shooting sports, fishing, hunting, canoeing, nature photography, archery, ATV handling, bird watching, and boat handling. The workshop will be at the 4-H Center near Columbiana.
“Enrollment is limited, and classes fill up pretty fast,” said coordinator Marisa Futral. “Those interested in attending BOW should register as soon as possible to make sure they get the classes they want. There are many ladies who have not been exposed to these outdoor activities and are apprehensive about trying them.
“BOW is ideal for those women because everything is taught at a beginner level.”
Applicants must be 18 years or older to take part. Registration is 7 p.m. Aug. 1 to 7 a.m. Aug. 7. The fee is $275, which covers meals, dormitory-style lodging, program materials and instruction.
