Outdoor Skills

ODFW’s Outdoor Skills Education Program offers a variety of hands-on workshops throughout the state that teach Oregonians how to fish, hunt, view wildlife and enjoy outdoor related recreational activities. You’ll learn what the activity is all about, what equipment is required and how to use it safely. You will then be given an opportunity to get out in the field and put your new skills to the test. We provide all the necessary equipment and the hands on instruction are provided by ODFW’s experienced and friendly staff and volunteer instructors. Workshops are designed for women, adults, and families.

To learn more about the specific programs we offer, please go to the ODFW Outdoors Calendar
