‘Finding Your Voice’ workshop set

Valerie Lowe, professional singer, songwriter and performing artist, has combined 30 years of these skills with her life experiences and created “Finding Your Voice.”

This workshop, which is both therapeutic and experiential, encourages interpersonal communication through improvisational singing, journaling and sound meditation. It explores, she says, “alternative ways to get in touch with a deeper part of one’s self and connect in this way with others. We learn in a safe environment how to improve our listening skills, create positive boundaries and open our hearts.”

The workshop is scheduled for Saturday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at 424 Zion St., Nevada City (a cross street is Gethsemene). $60 includes a minijournal book, workshop material and a wholesome lunch. Call Lowe at 277-6999 or e-mail her at findingyourvoice@sbcglobal.net. No musical experience is necessary.

Wildflowers bloom at Bridgeport

Spring wildflowers continue to bloom on the Buttermilk Bend Trail at Bridgeport. The Yarrow and Dove’s Foot Geranium can now be added to the list. Also, the Western Redbud is beginning to flower. With its magenta-red blossoms, it is one of our loveliest native plants. Free docent-led walks are every Saturday and Sunday at 11 a.m. through Memorial Day, starting at the north parking lot just beyond the covered bridge.
