Women and girls can now register for the Washington Outdoor Women’s annual fall workshop. The program, set for Sept. 12-14, is designed to bring women and girls (ages 9-12) together for a weekend of fishing, hunting and outdoor-skills education.

Volunteer instructors will include four state Department of Fish and Wildlife biologists, who will teach skills including wildlife identification, freshwater fishing, and map and compass reading.

This year’s workshop will be held at Camp Waskowitz in North Bend.

This is the first year the program is intended for woman-girl pairs. Organizers said they want to start engaging the next generation of outdoor stewards. This year’s camp is open to 45 pairs.

The cost is $375 for each woman-girl pair.

For information about registration, go to or call director Ronni McGlenn at 425-455-1986.

Now in its 17th year, the nonprofit program is an educational outreach program of the Washington Wildlife Federation.
