The first workshop is Friday at Hudson Hall in Spearfish from 6:30 to 8 p.m.

The second workshop is Saturday at the South Dakota Game, Fish, and Parks Department’s Outdoor Campus West in Rapid City from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m.

The Crazy Horse Memorial near Custer will be the site of the third workshop on March 9 from 9:30 to 11 a.m.
