Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - NORTHWEST/TELEVISION -

Women who want to learn more about ca­noe­ing and how to fish an Ozarks stream should sign up for the Mis­souri Depart­ment of Con­ser­va­tion’s “Dis­cover Na­ture: Women’s Ca­noe­ing and Stream Fish­ing” pro­gram set for Aug. 1.

The event will be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and con­sists of a five-mile guided float trip down a por­tion of the James River near Spring­field, Mo. Depart­ment staff will ac­com­pany floaters and of­fer on-the-wa­ter in­struc­tion and as­sis­tance through­out the trip.

Trans­porta­tion to and from the river will be pro­vided. Par­tic­i­pants will meet at the Mis­souri Depart­ment of Con­ser­va­tion’s south­west re­gional of­fice, 2630 N. May­fair Ave., in Spring­field.

The trip is for women ages 14 and up. Ages 14-17 must be ac­com­pa­nied by a par­tic­i­pat­ing adult. Par­tic­i­pants age 16 and older must pos­sess a valid Mis­souri fish­ing li­cense. Women who don’t have res­i­dent fish­ing per­mits may pur­chase a sin­gle-day fish­ing per­mit.

Par­tic­i­pants are re­spon­si­ble for their own lunch and re­fresh­ments. Women can bring their own fish­ing equip­ment or use equip­ment pro­vided by depart­ment. No al­co­hol is al­lowed.

To reg­is­ter for this free pro­gram, call 417-895-6880.
