The Delaware County Longbeards Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation will be hosting its 3rd annual Women in the Outdoors event on June 12, 2004 at the Delaware County Field & Stream Club in Bookhaven, PA (Delaware County).Through this event, women from all walks of life will be given the chance to experience the thrill of outdoor activities such as archery, fishing, fly fishing, handguns, map & compass, shotgunning, fly tying, tree identification, outdoor photography, birdwatching/identification, and trap shooting. It will also allow women to develop a greater understanding of wildlife conservation and meet others who share their enthusiasm. The Women in the Outdoors program’s mission is to provide hands-on, educational outdoor opportunities for women. The program is now in its sixth year, and there are over 43,000 members. “The Women in the Outdoors program allows the NWTF to reach an entirely new audience, one that has been overlooked in the past for outdoor sports and conservation,” said Rob Keck, NWTF CEO.The events are held across the country with experts on hand to teach in a noncompetitive manner. The combination of sponsorship and local chapter support allows the NWTF to offer these programs at a low cost to participants.
