We are co-hosting our ladies outreach event with the Central Massachusetts Chapter,” she said. “I have been working hard promoting the event around Rhode Island. We already have over 50 ladies registered and are expecting 100 ladies for this fun event.”

Turkey Chicks is part of the National Wild Turkey Federation, a group whose local chapters do a great deal of conservation and education work in southern New England.

Women in the Outdoors will offer 26 classes during the day, starting at 7 a.m. They include fly fishing, self defense, photography, shooting, trapping, canning and more.

The cost is $65 for women older than 18 and $40 for girls from 13 to 17. Pena said the fee covers an annual membership, a light breakfast, hearty lunch and four class choices. Equipment, ammunition, and other gear will be provided, and everyone who attends will receive a souvenir, Pena said. Overnight camping with dinner is optional.

To register, contact Keith Fritze at (774) 272-1274 or kfritze@charter.net.
