Take it outside
If you are a woman who would like to check out rock climbing, canoeing, scuba diving, shooting sports or bird watching, “Becoming an Outdoors Woman” may be the program for you.
This three-day workshop March 2-4 in Shelby County, sponsored by the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, offers more than 50 courses to choose from. Others include fishing, motor boat handling, using a map and compass, watching wildlife, photography, nature crafts, mountain biking, all-terrain vehicles, and trying out pistols, rifles, shotguns or muzzleloaders while learning gun safety.
It is open to women 18 and up and can help moms, grandmas, wives and single women of all ages feel more at home outside by trying beginner-level activities.
The registration fee of $199 covers all meals, dormitory lodging at the 4-H Center near Columbiana, program materials and instruction. Enrollment is limited to 130 applicants.
