The “Mural Trail”, with Lake County inspired murals (from themes on natural resources, culture, history etc.), include several within the City of Lakeport. The murals in Lakeport are a joint project between the Rural Arts Initiative, The City of Lakeport, and The Lakeport Main Street Association.
The Lake Birds Mural is located on the corner of 4th Street and Main Street in Lakeport. The charming group of lake birds showcases the amazing aviary world of Clear Lake. The colorful and unique grouping revels in the natural beauty and richness of our lake. Each panel’s amazing life-like depiction was inspired by of one of the lake’s special water birds, much admired by birders and all who enjoy the lake!
