Lake Metigoshe State Park to host WOW

Lake Metigoshe State Park is hosting the Wild Outdoor Women Event Feb. 23-25. This event is primarily for women over the age of 16 who are looking to learn or improve on skills associated with several of North Dakota’s outdoor recreational activities.

WOW events provide excellent opportunities for participants to step out of their comfort zones to try something new and acquire basic skills without having to purchase any equipment. At the end of the sessions, participants have developed skills needed to safely enjoy the outdoors and decide whether they would like to continue to do that activity on their own by purchasing their own gear.

The upcoming event is expanding to offer mini sessions in the evenings and additional activity choices in comparison to last winter’s event. Activities scheduled to take place include cross-country skiing, Dutch oven cooking and care, fish decoy carving and painting, snowshoeing, dark house spearfishing, fur handling, downhill skiing, flint knapping, advanced cross-country skiing, owl calling, snowshoe lacing, snowmobile certification, arm knitting and more.

Registration closes Jan. 22.
