Birding women On the first weekend in June, I invite any interested women to join me in Becket with other women who want to learn some great outdoor skills such as archery, bird watching, canoeing, Dutch-oven cooking, fly-fishing, kayaking, firearms shooting and much more. There are over 26 skill sessions from which you can choose four. We’ve illustrated some of the sessions from previous workshops, including a fly tying session that Department of Fish and Game Commissioner Mary Griffin attended one year.
