Registration is open for a unique outdoors event designed for women.
According to the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism, the 2014 Spring Becoming An Outdooes Woman workshop will give women a chance to immerse themselves in everything outdoors. Women can learn things like what baits catch what fish, how to start a fire with their bare hands, and coasting a creek in a canoe. Courses are planned on everything from wood-carving and GPS basics, to rifle marksmanship and fly fishing.
The event will be held at the Rock Springs 4-H Center May 16th – 18th.
Offered through the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism, the event is a non-profit, non-membership program designed for teaching women outdoor skills. The workshop will offer over 25 different classes thanks to a core of volunteer instructors, including KDWPT employees, law enforcement officials, and even past participants, all of whom are considered to be experts in their field.
Cost for the three-day workshop is $250, which includes lodging, meals and class supplies. Three $100 scholarships are available to first-time participants based on financial need.
Early registration is open to first-time participants through March 15. If spots still remain, past participants may register beginning March 16. Applicants are encouraged to apply early as the spring workshop is limited to 48 participants and the application period will close May 2.
