All women are invited to the Women in the Outdoors for a day of fun outdoors including fly fishing, archery and crafts at Erie County Conservation Society in Chaffee on June 8.
Mothers, daughters, sisters and friends are welcome to sign up and learn a new skill — no experience is required.
The Springville Strutters chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF), headquartered in Springville, is hosting this event.
Registration is $65 and includes a hot catered lunch. Pre-registration is required by June 1.
“Our chapter has hosted this event for 20 years, and we work to ensure everyone feels at ease,” said Becky Werchowski. “In a judgment-free zone, everyone can learn and have a good time. If someone hits a bulls-eye, everyone cheers. But if they miss the target, everyone cheers anyway. It’s a lot of fun.”
Knowledgeable instructors will teach activities, including archery, fly fishing, kayaking, painting flower pot, shotgun, canoe camping and more.
Local and state NWTF chapters host thousands of similar events nationwide each year through its Women in the Outdoors Hunting Heritage Program.
Many families enjoy hunting together and pass traditions on from one generation to another. Hunting also is important for the health of our nation’s wildlife and habitat because of the hunters fund conservation.
Wild turkeys and the management and hunting that go with them contribute $2 billion to the American economy each spring.
