The Eastern Oklahoma County Struttin' Hens are hosting a Women In The Outdoors event June 7 at the Arcadia Conservation Education Area in Edmond. Women In The Outdoors (WITO) is a women-only program hosted by the National Wild Turkey Federation. Expert instructors will teach outdoor skills related to hunting, camping, cooking, fishing, and anything outdoors. 

"This program helps women develop outdoor skills like fishing and hunting but it also offers activities like basket weaving, jewelry making, bird watching, and primitive cooking. I attended an event last year and had a blast," said Jennifer Benge, information and education technician for the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation.

This program is a hands-on, educational, outdoor opportunity for girls and women ages 14 and older. Space is limited. The cost to attend the event is $65, which includes a one-year subscription to "Turkey Country" magazine and a one-year membership to the National Wild Turkey Federation. Equipment, materials, breakfast and lunch are provided.
