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.

LAKE COUNTY – Once again in 2008 the Clear Lake Trowel and Trellis Garden Club wove its magic – specifically, over the holidays, in the form of beautiful holiday wreaths – to support local young people in their schooling.


Each year the club collects fresh greenery, then works for three days at a workshop creating fresh greenery wreaths that are sold to community members.


This money then goes towards scholarships for local students.


At the club's Christmas luncheon, Mary Ann Worth, co-chair of the garden club's wreath making project, reported on and thanked all the workers.


Nora Gerrard, treasurer, reported that enough profit was made so there is enough money to give two $1,000 scholarships again this coming spring.


The club also thanked the community for its support of the effort.
