Jeffco Open Space is holding their popular “Nature Journal Club” tomorrow (Saturday 3/5) from 10-2 at the Lookout Mountain Nature Center.  Strengthen your personal connection with the natural world by keeping a sketchbook nature journal. This session will cover journaling fundamentals and will be a great opportunity for newcomers to develop basic drawing skills and find out more about materials. Time will also be spent journaling along the trails. Please remember to bring an item for a shared potluck lunch. For more details and to register, click here.

This weekend is your last chance to see 4000 Miles at Miners Alley.  Performances are at 7:30 Friday and Saturday, and 2PM Sunday.

Golden City Councilor Saoirse Charis-Graves will hold her monthly “Coffee with a Councilor” tomorrow morning (Saturday 3/5) from 10-11 to talk to constituents about any questions or concerns they have regarding Golden.  Location: Bean Fosters, 720 Golden Ridge Road (map)

Sunday afternoon at 2PM, Foothills Art Center will present a panel discussion with artists Regina Benson and Ira Sherman.  The topic is “The Artists Speak: the Role of Art in Social Change.”  That would also be a good time to see the current exhibit, “The Engaged Object.”
