COLLBRAN, Colo. – Colorado Parks and Wildlife is inviting women interested in learning the basics of fly-fishing, shotgun shooting and archery to attend the popular Cast, Blast and Twang seminar to be held in Collbran, Saturday, May 19.
Taught by Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers and volunteers, the three-part class is designed specifically for those who have an interest in learning about these popular outdoor activities in a comfortable, women-only class.
“Some women may not have a mentor or an experienced person to teach them these skills, and this class is perfect for them,” said Education Coordinator Kathleen Tadvick.
Cast, Blast and Twang is part of Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s Women Afield Program. Through workshops, clinics, seminars, and educational hunts, the program focuses on teaching the skills, ethics and traditions of hunting to novice women.
The clinic begins at 8:30 a.m. and is scheduled to conclude mid-afternoon of the same day.
For additional details, or to register for the class, please contact Kathleen Tadvick at 970-255-6181.
