Oklahoma Workshop Promotes Women in the Outdoors

A Women in the Outdoors (WITO) event is scheduled for June 9 at the Arcadia Conservation Education Area. This women-only event is hosted by the National Wild Turkey Federation’s Eastern Oklahoma County Struttin’ Hens chapter. Expert instructors will teach outdoor skills related to hunting, camping, fishing and other outdoor activities.

WITO events provide women an opportunity to use a bow and arrow, learn how to paddle a kayak, shoot targets, or try their hand at basket weaving and more. Each event offers something different, and a list of classes for the event can be found here.

This program is a hands-on, educational outdoor opportunity for girls and women 14 and older. Space is limited. The cost is $65, which includes a one-year subscription to Turkey Country magazine and a one-year membership to the National Wild Turkey Federation. Equipment, breakfast and lunch are provided.
