COLUMBIA, Mo. – The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) invites women ages 18 or older (girls 14 and up may accompany an adult participant) to discover nature by learning the basics of archery. The program will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 4, at the MDC Regional Office, 3500 E. Gans Road, in Columbia. The program is free, but registration is required by July 31.

From learning about archery equipment and shooting techniques to hunting and safety tips, women will get to discover nature by learning the fundamentals of archery through a two-part program. The first part will be a classroom lesson. The second part will be a mentored shooting experience. All equipment will be provided for this program.

"Archery is a growing sport and one the entire family can participate in," said MDC Outdoors Skills Specialist Brian Flowers.
