Looking fi,"a tittle uality in the great outdoors It's about time for a little equal- ity when it comes to the outdoors. The Delaware Division of Fish and Wildlife will sponsor the state's first "Becoming an Out- doors-Woman" program on the weekend of May 30-June 1 at Camp Arrowhead. Begun six years ago in Wiscon- sin, the national "Becoming an Outdoors-Woman" program has the primary goal of providing women with the opportunities to learn skills that enhance and en- courage participation in outdoor activities, such as hunting and fishing, from which they tradition- ally have been excluded. Delaware's program begins Fri- day, May 30 and continues through the weekend with four half-day training sessions. Partici- pants will have the opportunity to choose from a wide range of of- ferings during each of the ses- sions, including trap shooting, ba- sic shotgunning, muzzleloader shooting, introduction to deer and turkey hunting, saltwater and surf fishing, fly casting, fishing rod building, boat handling skills, sea kayaking and discovering scuba. The instructors, most of whom are from the local area, have been selected both for their expertise in their field and for their ability to provide instruction in a support- ive, patient and non-competitive atmosphere. "The workshop is for you if--you have never tried these activities, but have hoped for an opportunity to learn; you are a be- ginner who hopes to improve your outdoor skills; you know how to do some outdoor activities and would like to try your hand at some new ones; or you are just looking for camaraderie of like- minded individuals," according to Mic_key Barton of the Division of Fish and Wildlife. OUTDOORS Although the emphasis is on women, the activities are open to anyone 18 or older. The cost of the program is $100, which in- cludes lodging, meals, instruction and the use of all necessary sup- plies. Anyone interested in receiv- ing additional information, regis- tration forms and a detailed sched- ule of activities should send their name, address and phone number to B.O.W. Mailing List, c/o the Division of Fish and Wildlife, 89 Kings Highway, P.O. Box 11401, Dover, 19903. Faxes should be di- rected to B.O.W. Mailing List 302-739-6157 or call 739-3486.
