A group of about 60 residents concluded a three-day workshop Sunday after trading suggestions on how to develop the Laguna Canyon Wilderness Park. Among the issues discussed was the location of park entrances and the configuration of hiking, biking and equestrian trails. Putting an art museum or art school at the northern end of the park also was suggested.

Samson the hot-tubbing bear got $190,000. A pair of wood-chucking beavers came in a close second with $115,000. Perhaps it's a sign of Orange County's robust economy and the largess of its residents. No matter, county parks and the zoo are raking in big money from private donors and private corporations.

The firestorm that destroyed 366 houses in Laguna Beach last fall also blackened much of Laguna Coast Wilderness Park, which had opened just months before. Whereas rebuilding the homes has been a sometimes-painful process that continues to be stalled for some, the park has quietly been healing itself. The public will get a chance to see for itself Saturday, when the Laguna Canyon Foundation sponsors a springtime open house.

The slightly built hiker trudged up a rutted trail, through meadows of wildflowers and sycamore groves, past canyon walls and creek beds exploding with color after two years of heavy winter rain. Up and up the young man went in his Army field jacket and camouflage cap, a bedroll peeking from his knapsack. He was lured on, perhaps, by the rare sound of water rushing down Laurel Creek and a glimpse of the wispy veils of wet tumbling over a waterfall ahead.

The Laguna Canyon Foundation recently honored the late Barbara Stuart Rabinowitsh for her $500,000 donation for the preservation of Laguna Canyon. To honor Rabinowitsh, the foundation has named the largest of the lakes at Laguna Canyon Wilderness Park Barbara's Lake. Rabinowitsh was an ardent supporter of the foundation's efforts to preserve Laguna Canyon and other charitable arts, environmental and service organizations.

At first glance, the 6-foot-tall tangle of pipe wrapped in a blanket of barbed wire could be mistaken for a lot of things: a plumbing project gone terribly awry. A robot from a low-budget 1950s sci-fi flick. Maybe a piece of modern art. But a cactus? Scientists experimenting with ways to restore the coastal habitat of a beleaguered bird hope so. In recent weeks they've planted 15 of these homemade, green-painted contraptions on fire-scarred hills throughout Orange County's Irvine Ranch Conservancy to try to entice a declining population of cactus wrens to nest.
