The Wapiti Roost Chapter of the NWTF is hosting a Women in the Outdoors event to be held at St. Marys's Sportsmen Club in St Marys, PA.

This year's list of activities includes Stepping Stones, Hunting 101, Plant ID, Archery, Self Defense, Fly Fishing, Shotgun, Geocaching and Outdoor Photography.

Registration forms are available on the Women in the Outdoors website at www.womenintheoutdoors.org. Click on Find an event and then click Pennsylvania. The completed forms and registration can be mailed to Leslie Smith, 3157 Ben Salem Rd, Andreas, PA 18211.

Founded in 1973, NWTF-WITO programs have been held since 1998 and the organized events are designed especially for women by providing expert instruction and hands-on education. The events help participants develop outdoors skills and emphasize the importance of wildlife management and the role of hunters in conservation.

A new or renewal NWTF membership is included in the registration fee for a WITO event, and the organization's "Turkey Country" magazine has special features for women. In addition, NWTF's "Turkey Call" television program on the Pursuit Channel has segments by Brenda Valentine, who also appears on the "Real Hunting" program sponsored by Bass Pro Shops.

"Our Women in the Outdoors program is about encouraging women to try new outdoor activities in a safe environment that makes them feel at ease," Valentine said. "These events are also an opportunity for women of all walks of life - singles, moms, daughters, young and old - to spend a day outdoors, away from home, having fun and making new friends. Through the Women in the Outdoors program, the NWTF is able to reach an entirely new audience.

"That audience has the potential to benefit conservation efforts. It's an opportunity for women to find great satisfaction and enjoyment in the outdoors."
