The workshop, sponsored by the North Dakota Game and Fish Department, offers 26 different seminars, each of which lasts more than three hours, according to BOW coordinator Nancy Boldt.
Classes are held outdoors, and each session contains 45 minutes of lecture with the remainder dedicated to hands-on instruction. Each session has room for 12 women, Boldt said, ensuring each person receives the needed help and technical assistance.
Participants are limited to four sessions. New classes offered this workshop include dragonflies and butterflies, kayaking, waterfowl identification, birds and their nests, and furry creatures.
Other classes include fishing and fly-fishing, bird identification, plant identification, canoeing, predator calling, decoy carving, GPS adventure, archery and shotgunning.
