Faith Jarek, of Parkwood Middle School in Union County, fires off her 12-gauge shotgun in March at the John F. Lentz Hunter Education Complex. Jarek has a leg up on other woman who aspire to enjoy the outdoors but a workshop for females 18 and up can help.

The hands-on workshop will provide training in shotgun, rifle, bow and arrow, and crossbow. Experienced instructors will emphasize safety, proper firing techniques and offer one-on-one instruction.

“No previous experience is needed for this workshop – just an interest in shooting and archery,” said BB Gillen, outdoor skills coordinator for the Wildlife Commission. “And it’s free, thanks to the Wake County Wildlife Club. Space is limited, however, so I suggest anyone interested sign up as soon as possible.”

Pre-registration is required and the workshop is limited to 30 participants on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The Wake County Wildlife Club will host the workshop and provide instruction, ammo, equipment, lunch, drinks and snacks. Established in 1966, the Wake County Wildlife Club is a non-profit conservation and education organization made up of sportsmen and sportswomen who enjoy the outdoors.

Becoming an Outdoors-Woman is an international program for women, 18 and older, conducted in North Carolina through the Wildlife Commission. To learn more about this and other conservation education opportunities, events and activities, visit www.ncwildlife.org/learning.

For more information or to pre-register, contact Gillen at 919-218-3638 or bb.gillen@ncwildlife.org.
