Becoming An Outdoors Woman Program Planned For Jan. 11-13 at Kenlake State Resort Park
HARDIN, Ky. – A three-day program introducing women to the outdoors will be held Jan. 11-13 at Kenlake State Resort Park near Murray.
The “Becoming an Outdoors Woman” program is co-sponsored by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources and the Kentucky Department of Parks. The program is being offered at several parks during 2008.
The Kenlake weekend will include an eagle viewing tour on Kentucky Lake on a yacht, classes on bow-hunting, shooting rifles and shotguns, identifying trees, making birdhouses and more.
The BOW workshops are designed for women to “get their feet wet” with professional instruction from a teacher whose goal is to make sure the participant has fun, and comes away with confidence in their new skills.
The fee for the weekend, which includes food and lodging, is $200. The deadline to register is Dec. 27. You may register with a credit card, or get a form by calling toll-free 1-800-858-1549 weekdays (Eastern Time). Forms are also on the internet at fw.ky.gov.
Future BOW workshops are also planned at Cumberland Falls (Feb 22-24), Carter Caves (April 4-6) and Rough River Dam (April 25-27).
