RALEIGH, N.C. (Dec. 3, 2012) — A great gift idea for women on your shopping list, especially for the outdoors enthusiast, is a Becoming an Outdoors-Woman gift certificate from the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission.

The recipient will enjoy a weekend workshop, which will be held at YMCA Camp Harrison Herring Ridge in Wilkes County, May 3-5. Order your gift certificate online or by phone 1-866-945-3746. Cost is $225 per person and includes a choice of four outdoor skill sessions, all program materials and use of equipment, plus meals and lodging. Activities include expert instruction in fishing, trapping and target shooting, as well as outdoor cooking and nature photography.

“This is a fun weekend and a no-pressure learning environment,” Outdoors Skills Coordinator BB Gillen said. “A gift certificate is ideal for any woman wanting to explore nature, learn some outdoor skills and have a weekend designed for her.”

Becoming an Outdoors-Woman is an international program for women, 18 and older, to learn outdoor skills through hands-on experiences in a variety of outdoor instructional activities, such as archery, paddling, wildlife photography, outdoor cooking, tracking and map-and-compass orienteering. In North Carolina, the program is administered by the Wildlife Commission.
