By taking arms against a sea of exotic vegetation, local volunteers created a local gem. In the two decades following the 18-acre Shipley Nature Center’s founding in 1974, it was a thriving example of the region’s local flora and fauna, right in Huntington Beach’s Central Park.

Lolita Harper NEWPORT-MESA -- While ghosts, goblins and creatures from the dark side are often associated with the Halloween tradition, some area churches say they will try to shift the focus to the lighter side of the season. Newport Mesa Christian Center will hold a festival to celebrate the harvest season, rather than the usual fright fests associated with the pagan holiday. Debbie Hampton, the festival's game booth coordinator, said the Harvest Festival provides a safe and scare-free atmosphere for families.

Young Chang Ghosts and goblins are not normally the province of area churches, but every Halloween a few establishments welcome children to haunt their hallowed halls in order to provide a safe environment for trick-or-treating. Rock Harbor Christian Church will hold its annual Rocktoberfest at the top of Triangle Square's parking lot this year, moving it away from the parking lot of the Costa Mesa Senior Center, where it meets, because of the festival's growth.
