CLEAR LAKE STATE PARK – For a great start to the new year, join park docent Walt Lyon on Sunday, Jan. 11, for a walk on Clear Lake State Park’s Indian Nature Trail.

Meet Lyon at the front entrance parking lot at 8:30 a.m. to start the ascent of this intriguing hillside trail.

Lyon will describe how Native Americans used the natural resources along this trail to enrich and sustain their lives. Many plants were prepared for medicinal uses and others for food. The remarkable elderberry tree had many uses.

The Indian Nature Trail was designed in 1959 to give park visitors a great walking experience as well as showing the importance of the natural resources in the park. Winter starts the renewal for the flowers of next spring. Take time out of your busy schedule to enjoy this trail for all seasons.

Rain cancels the walk. There is no entrance fee to the park for participating in walks.

Docent led walks are scheduled for the second and fourth Sunday of each month. The next walk will be on Jan. 25.

Clear Lake State Park is located at 5300 Soda Bay Road, Kelseyville.
