Women in the Outdoors marks second year

MORRISONVILLE — The second-annual Women in the Outdoors event gave participants a chance to try some Dutch oven cooking and to make crafts using outdoor materials.

The free event last weekend provided lunch, too.

Women in the Outdoors is sponsored by the Lake Champlain Turkey Talkers, the local division of the Women in the Outdoors program.

That group is part of the National Wild Turkey Federation, which aims to provide outdoor educational opportunities for women, encourage conservation of the wild turkey and hunting heritage.
