Registrations are being accepted for women interested in attending the Becoming an Outdoors-Woman workshop, held Aug. 8-10 at Lake Metigoshe State Park near Bottineau. The cost is $135 for those 18 years or older with an Aug. 1 registration deadline.

The workshop, sponsored by the North Dakota Game and Fish Department, offers 26 different seminars, ranging from fly-fishing to archery to shotgunning, each of which lasts more than three hours. Classes are held outdoors, and each session includes 45 minutes of lecture with the remainder dedicated to hands-on instruction. Each session has room for 12 women. Participants are limited to four sessions.

New classes offered this year include basic boating skills, field dressing big game, and tracking and trapping. Other classes include archery, wild backyards, basic birding, canoeing, fly-fishing, kayaking, plant identification and predator calling.

Participants will stay in dorms and must provide their own bedding and towels. All camp facilities are handicap accessible. Equipment will be provided unless noted in the course description.
