From the North Dakota Game and Fish Department
-- The North Dakota Game and Fish Department is still accepting registrations for the 15th annual Becoming an Outdoors Woman Workshop, Aug. 7-9 at Lake Metigoshe State Park near Bottineau. The cost is $135 for women 18 years of age or older with an Aug. 1 registration deadline.
The workshop offers 24 different seminars, each of which lasts more than three hours. Classes are held outdoors, and each session contains 45 minutes of lecture with the remainder dedicated to hands-on instruction. Each session has room for 12 women. Participants are limited to four sessions.
Women will learn the basics of hunting and fishing, shooting, navigation, and plants and animals. New classes offered this year include basic boating skills and intermediate archery. Other classes include decoy carving, canoeing, fly-fishing, kayaking, plant identification and predator calling.
Participants will stay in dorms and must provide their own bedding and towels. All camp facilities are handicap accessible. Equipment is provided unless noted in the course description.
