Become An Outdoors Woman September 18-20


Frankfort, Ky. - Channel your inner Annie Oakley through a special Becoming an Outdoors-Woman program being offered September 18-20 at Lake Cumberland.

Women can try their hand at rifle shooting in a relaxed atmosphere where everyone is friends and there's no pressure to hit the most bull's-eyes. This special workshop, hosted by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources, offers beginners and novices a terrific opportunity to learn more about enjoying the outdoors.

In addition to courses on rifle and shotgun shooting, the workshop offers classes on hunting, fishing, archery, canoeing, campfire cooking, tree identification, boating, wilderness survival, orienteering and more. Those brave at heart may even want to try the high ropes challenge. Experienced and understanding instructors lead every course.

Workshop participants often finish the weekend with renewed self-confidence and a greater comfort with outdoor activities.

Registration fees include four workshop sessions, evening programs, accommodations for two nights, six meals and friendships that may last a lifetime. The workshop is being held at the Kentucky 4-H Leadership Center in Jabez, located on Lake Cumberland.

Registration is $165 through July 31, and $185 from August through Sept. 4. For more information or to receive a registration packet, call Kentucky Fish and Wildlife during normal weekday working hours at 1-800-858-1549.
