Diamond Valley Lake in Hemet California
Jean Hanley, Specializing in Folks Who Want To Buy/Sell Homes (Coldwell Banker Kivett Teeters)

Welcome to Hemet.....Home of beautiful Diamond Valley Lake Recreation Area.  Diamond Valley Lake is hidden back between the beautiful hills and a dam.  Diamond Valley Lake is a vital drinking water reservoir, serving millions of Southern California Metropolitan Water customers.  Metropolitan Water District keeps a close eye on the activities at Diamond Valley Lake for that very reason.

Diamond Valley Lake is open for boating and fishing, however there is a long list of rules and regulations, on what can and cannot be done on the lake, as well as exactly what kinds of vessels are allowed in the water.

There is absolutely NO swimming, personal watercraft, float tubes or body contact of any kind allowed.  Again, this is our drinking water resource.  Canoes and boats must be a certain length, and certain kinds of engines are allowed/disallowed.

There are walking trails up around the visitor center, overlooking Diamond Valley Lake, and in the springtime, rattle snakes are coming out of hibernation, therefore, warning signs are everywhere.

Also, beautiful wildflower walks are open in the spring.  Take a look at some of the wildflower slides.

Diamond Valley Lake The Jewel of California Lakes Bald Eagle Sightings

Diamond Valley Lake – The Jewel of California Lakes – In Search of Bald Eagle Sightings

When I came to the valley almost 20 years ago (wow how time flies), I knew folks who had lived most of their lives, if not their entire life, here in the valley, and claimed they had never seen a bald eagle.

I’ve seen many red-tailed hawks over the years circling in the sky, but never a bald eagle.

I remember reading in the newspaper about ten years ago the excitement that a bald eagle or two had been spotted over Lake Hemet, which is located in the mountains east of Hemet and west of Palm Springs.

 The Bald Eagle is the United States of America’s national bird

Bald Eagles were considered endangered until 2007 when they were removed from the U.S. government’s list of endangered and threatened species. Because of the efforts of wildlife conservationists, and in recent years, the Diamond Valley Lake project, bald eagles have come back to the valley.

Diamond Valley Lake is a man-made lake and reservoir. Fishing is allowed on sites off shore and on the lake, but no swimming because it is a water source. There are miles of hiking, biking and equestrian trails. One trail goes along the entire circumference of the lake.

About 10+ miles in from the Winchester Road entrance, on the south shore are two bald eagle roosting spots. Maybe soon I'll get a glimpse of this majestic bird flying above the lake. Diamond Valley Lake is a special place. The jewel of California lakes.

Hemet CA Museum--Western Science Center
Jean Hanley, Specializing in Folks Who Want To Buy/Sell Homes (Coldwell Banker Kivett Teeters)

Hemet, CA.  The Western Science Center, located at 2345 Searl Parkway in Hemet, CA is full of education, fun and excitement.

This state-of-the-art museum complex has something for everyone.

                    Western Science Center

This museum is home to a vast array of history and ice-age beasts which have been unearthed here at Diamond Valley Lake.  Max, is the largest mastodon ever found in the Western United States, as well as Xena, a Columbian Mammoth.

You will have a very eerie feeling when you walk on the temperer glass which has been placed over the "Little Stevie" exhibit, which is a large mastodon that has been re-buried beneath the museum floor to re-create the actual dig site.

You will also see exhibits such as saber-toothed cats, dire wolves, and many more artifacts.  As I said, there is something for everyone.
