-- Women can discover the enjoyment of winter sports in a fun atmosphere during the weekend-long Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ (DNR) winter workshop in February.
The workshop for women ages 14 and older is Friday, Feb. 26, through Sunday, Feb. 28 at the Audubon Environmental Learning Center near Sandstone.
“The winter workshop provides a unique opportunity to try out different winter sports in a supportive atmosphere,” said Linda Bylander, BOW coordinator. Prior experience doesn’t matter. Participants select their three favorite activities from a list of classes including dog mushing, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, quillwork, archery, ice fishing and winter hiking.
Lodging, meals, instruction, equipment and evening entertainment are included in the workshop fee. Registrations are accepted by calling the Audubon Environmental Learning Center at (888) 404-7743.
