A Nevada Ladies Day in the Outdoors
The Las Vegas chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation and the Nevada Department of Wildlife are hosting a special outdoor event just for the ladies, and there is still room for those women with an adventurous heart. The “Women in the Outdoors” workshop is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 4, 2008 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Spencer Kimball Boy Scout Reservation just outside of Las Vegas near Mt. Potosi.
Participants will have their choice of approximately 16 workshops taught by volunteers and staff from the Nevada Department of Wildlife, as well as talented members of the outdoor sporting community. Subjects include archery, camping, canoeing, Dutch oven cooking, fishing, introduction to hunting, shotgun shooting, wildlife identification and more. In addition, there will be a silent auction and raffle for some great outdoor gifts.
Registration $60 per person, but a mother and daughter duo can get in for $80. The daughter must be 14 to 17 years old. Registration forms can be obtained online at www.womenintheoutdoors.org/wito/eventPDFs/280011.pdf or by calling Wendy Andersen, 951-600-9268; Jessica Johnson, 702-204-8127; or Margie Klein, 702-486-5127 x 3502.
The Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) protects, restores and manages fish and wildlife, promotes fishing, hunting, and boating safety. NDOW’s wildlife and habitat conservation efforts are primarily funded by sportsmen’s license and conservation fees and a federal surcharge on hunting and fishing gear. Support wildlife and habitat conservation in Nevada by purchasing a hunting, fishing, or combination license. For more information, visit www.ndow.org.
