Wildflower class by BOW slated for July

Enterprise Staff

Here’s a chance to learn how to identify wildflowers. 

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks will offer a day-long class from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 8 near Big Sky at the Jack Creek Preserve Outdoor Education Center. 

The class is offered through the agency’s popular “Becoming an Outdoorswoman,” or BOW. 

Participants will spend the day learning basic flower identification while exploring the meadows and mountain sides of the Madison Range, according to an FWP news release. The class fee is $15. Participants should bring a lunch. 

 Registration forms are available on the FWP website at fwp.mt.gov. Click “Becoming an Outdoors Woman” under the “Education” tab.

 For more information, contact FWP’s BOW coordinator, Liz Lodman, at (406) 444-9940 or  llodman@mt.gov.

The Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) program is designed to introduce women to outdoor skills. The BOW program provides participants with information, encouragement and hands-on instruction in outdoor skills such as fishing, shooting, archery, map and compass, survival, canoeing and outdoor cooking, the release said.
