Deadline Approaching for Wild & Wonderful Women’s Outdoor Event July 22 nd at Kanawha State Forest

Women still have time to register for the third annual Wild & Wonderful Women’s Outdoor Event to be held at Kanawha State Forest on July 22, 2006, according to Frank Jezioro, Director of the Division of Natural Resources.

“The focus of the event is to provide women an opportunity to learn outdoor activities with a hands-on experience,” Jezioro said. “Although women make up half the population in West Virginia, they make up a much smaller number percentage of those who enjoy outdoor activities.”

During this one-day event, which is being co-sponsored by the National Wild Turkey Federation’s Women in the Outdoors program, women will have the opportunity to participate in four 90-minute classes throughout the day: archery, shooting, fishing, camping, first aid, backyard habitat, beginning birding, nature journaling, and outdoor cooking.

If you’ve ever wanted to learn an outdoor skill, but were unsure of the equipment needed or what’s all involved, this field day is a wonderful opportunity to explore these areas. Experienced volunteer instructors will be on hand to provide hands-on training throughout the day. In addition, women participating in the event will be eligible for door prizes, various raffles, and a silent auction that will include various items such as wildlife prints, sculptures, and quilts.

A small registration fee of $45 is required to cover the cost of training, materials, lunch, and a one-year subscription to the Women in the Outdoors Magazine.

For more information concerning this event or to register, visit the DNR’s website at or call 304-558-2771 or email for more information.
