Glasgow, MT -( Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks’ Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) program is sponsoring a beginning kayaking class August 13 at the First Dredge swim beach just north of the Fort Peck Fish Hatchery near Fort Peck.

The class will take place from 1-5 p.m.

Participants will learn from experienced instructors about different types of recreational kayaks and equipment, fishing from a kayak, safety, and where to go. Much of the time will be spent in kayaks, including getting in and out safely, so participants need to be prepared to get wet. Kayaks, paddles, and life jackets will be available for use, but participants are encouraged to bring their own equipment if they have it available.

This class is designed for women. Girls aged 13-17 can attend, but will need to be accompanied by a participating adult. Class size is limited, so please get your applications in by August 6. Snacks and drinks will be provided, and there will be a $10 fee to offset costs.

The registration forms are available on the FWP website at; click “Becoming an Outdoors Woman” under the Education tab. Forms can also be picked up at the Region 6 Headquarters in Glasgow or by contacting Marc Kloker at [email protected]

Please call 406-228-3704 or email Marc with any questions.
