Colorado Parks and Wildlife, in conjunction with Pheasants Forever, is offering a three-day outdoor skills education conference June 7 to 9 in Estes Park.
The Focus on Forever conference is designed to provide existing and new outdoors instructors with the latest training to teach skills such as archery, cast-iron cooking, shooting, canoeing and kayaking, among others.
“Colorado is an amazing state with so many outdoor opportunities,” Parks and Wildlife Partnership Director Allison Kincaid said in a news release. “People are hungry to learn new skills and get outside, but individual organizations may not have the ability to offer all of this training in one place for their staff, volunteers and board members.”
The conference costs $325 per person, but Parks and Wildlife is offering 50 percent match scholarships for organizations that can’t afford the fee.
“Beyond building skills, we’re excited to bring partner organizations together to network,” Kincaid said in the release. “Participants will learn about programs being offered by other organizations and, we hope, get a chance to find new ways to team up for greater success.”
Scholarship applications are available by contacting Kincaid at 303-291-7252 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about the Focus on Forever conference, visit Pheasants Forever at www.pheasantsforever.org.
