FWP offers classes for women

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks’ popular Becoming an Outdoors-Woman program offers classes for women to improve upon or learn new outdoor skills. Women must be 18 years of age or older to attend.

Registration is open for these upcoming summer events: 

• July 17 in Helena – Nature Journaling: Slow down, observe and take note of nature. This class is for the beginner or experienced nature journalist. You’ll learn to reflect on what you see in nature and express this in a journal. Class will be held at Montana WILD Education Center.

New this year is a series of classes for women who want to learn about hunting. The workshop will be held at the Arrowpeak Lodge in the Highwood Mountains.
