ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is marking the 20th anniversary of its Becoming an Outdoors-Woman program this year.
The DNR has just released its 2014 catalog of events for the program, which offers a wide range of hands-on learning opportunities for women and their families who want to learn how to hunt, fish or develop other outdoor skills.
BOW program coordinator Linda Bylander says the skill-building classes focus on learning by doing in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.
The more than 100 program offerings this year include a sturgeon fishing trip, grouse and pheasant hunts, kayaking and canoeing, to mention a few examples. The classes are designed for women age 14 and older. They range from beginner to advanced levels.
