Women's Outdoor Skills Workshop Scheduled For Western Colorado
As I was going through my morning emails I found this one from the Colorado Department of Wildlife (DOW).  I love seeing women (and our youth) get involved in outdoor activities. This is one way that Colorado is helping women learn about the outdoors and to get in the thick of it. I hope California will do something like this, too.

MONTROSE, Colo. -- Women who want to learn about wildlife, hunting and fishing should sign up for a weekend of expert instruction sponsored by the Colorado Division of Wildlife, July 23-25, at the Jim Olterman/Lone Cone State Wildlife Area.
     
At this "Cast and Blast" event, women will learn the fundamentals of archery, fly fishing and shotgun shooting. Participants will also learn about wildlife and wildlife management.
     
No experience is necessary and novices are encouraged to attend. All equipment and ammunition will be provided, but participants can bring their own shotguns, fishing rods or bows. Participants age 16 and older must have a 2010 Colorado Fishing license.
     
Food also will be provided. Camping is available on site, but participants must bring their own tents and sleeping bags.
     
The registration deadline is July 2; a $40 refundable deposit is required. The workshop is limited to 15 women ages 14 and older.
     
The event will start at 5 p.m., July 23 and conclude at 1 p.m. on July 25. The state wildlife area is located 25 miles south of Norwood.
     
To register, contact Dawn Bresett at the DOW's Montrose office, (970)252-6000, or by e-mail, dawn.bresset@state.co.us.
