Amazing Snakes


Snakes play an important role in the South Coast Wilderness. In the spring, snakes emerge from their winter dens, warm themselves in the sun, and begin to wander the hills in search of prey. They will be active until the weather cools again in the late fall.

Steve Bledsoe of The North American Field Herping Association will bring live snakes to the park and provide a presentation about our Orange County snakes. Bring your curiosity and your questions. Learn to tell the venomous from non-venomous snakes. This program is Recommended for ages 8 and above.

  • When: Saturday, June 20, 2015 from 7:15 pm – 8:15 pm
  • Where: Laguna Niguel Regional Park, 28241 La Paz Road, Laguna Niguel. Meet at the amphitheater.
  • Cost: FREE, parking is $5.00

Reservations are encouraged. For questions call: 949-497-8324 Mon-Fri or (949) 923-2240 Sat/Sun.

Saturday, January 24, 2015 – 7:00pm – Party on the Plaza featuring Nick Waterhouse

Huntington Beach native Nick Waterhouse takes the stage with a sound that falls somewhere between neo-soul and a Raymond Chandler novel, Waterhouse is vintage cool, a throwback without being retro. On his current release, Holly, Sam Cooke meets Meyer Hawthorne and the stunning result is the perfect soundtrack to an Off-Center night on the Plaza.

Food Trucks Scheduled (subject to change): WaffNRoll, Mustache Mike’s & Frijolitos Coffee.

New Events Calender!


Friday morning, just as my Weekend Roundup posted. I was checking my site and I got the dreaded 404 error message “Page not Found”. None of my links were working! Well, that quickly sent me into an email sending frenzy and searching forums to find answers to fix the problem.

Like most things that happen in life – a change or revision often comes as a result or realization that something isn’t working properly. I had actually been working an event calendar already so this just forced me make it happen – immediately.

Bottom line is that you can now find all upcoming events in the “Events Calendar” on the sidebar of my blog. Isn’t funny how we have to be pushed into things? Maybe that’s just me.

This means you won’t see my Weekend Roundup anymore as there is no longer a need for it. I hope the new calendar addition will help you schedule your calendar more efficiently as well.

Just keep in mind, this site is a work in progress and I am always forced to learn new things as a result of this blog so don’t be surprised if something looks different in a couple of days.

Oh, by the way – I searched and searched and I fixed the problem myself. My links are all working again and I’ve got this great events calendar as a result – so it’s all good!

Let me know if this is new addition is helpful for you.
