The Outdoor Women of South Dakota (OWSD) is an organization that promotes hands-on education and participation in outdoor activities with a primary focus on women and children.
One of their monthly events in December will be held on Saturday, December 19, from 1 – 3 p.m. MT at the 4-H Building, 601 E. Centre Street, in Rapid City (at the fairgrounds).
The theme is pretty timely right now, “Outdoor Survival.” There will be a short video on proper outdoor clothing, water tips, and selection of backpack/equipment. There will be discussion on how NOT to get lost in the outdoors, and if you do get lost, what to do.
Guest speaker, Steve Baldwin, is with the Custer County Fire & Rescue, and will be covering some basic first aid tips and other emergency scenarios which occur in the outdoors.
If you are interested in attending, please RSVP ASAP by e-mailing Cheri Hilton at firstname.lastname@example.org. The cost for this workshop is $3 per person for non-OWSD members and FREE for OWSD members. Please pay at the door.
