Native Garden Tour & Free Lecture
"A self-guided journey through 45 Los Angeles-area home gardens, each containing at least 50% native plants - and showcasing the region’s most creative homeowners and garden designers." The geek gardener in us loves this. It's $20 bucks online or phone (they'll give you an e-mail ticket). Also, there's a free lecture tonight at Barnsdall Gallery Theatre at 6:30 p.m. More info.

Renaissance Pleasure Faire Opens Today
Get out your costumes, today is the first day of the big event, which goes through May 17th. More info.

Explore Tidepools
Head on over to the beach to Leo Carillo State Park in Malibu to explore tidepools at 12 p.m. Meet at the park entrance, then take a guided hike and tour to the tidepool area with interpretation rangers. Rain cancels the event. And yes, if you want to Twitter or live blog the whole thing, the park has free WiFi.
