Success Stories

Fund-Raising Bears Visual Fruit

Kohm Yah-mah-nee, Lassen Volcanic National Park's first, year-round Visitor Center is now open.  A dramatic documentary about the natural and human history of the national park, funded by contributions from the Lassen Park Foundation, opened to critical acclaim.  The film describes man's history in the national park and describes the park's importance as an active site of volcanic activity.  The four major types of volcano are shown and described in a film that is both educational and entertaining.



Addition exhibits in the visitor center explain much about what makes Lassen Volcanic National Park so fascinating.

Donors who gave $1000 or more are memorialized on a donor wall inside the new Visitor Center.

The design-build contract was awarded to Slayden Construction Group of Stayton, Oregon in June. The architect was Ward Young of Truckee.



The plans were adapted to a single-story structure of 8,800 square feet and include interpretive exhibits and displays, an auditorium for films and events, a fireplace, an outdoor amphitheater, a bookstore for educational products, a gift and souvenirs section, a restaurant, restrooms, first-aid services and after-hours orientation displays. The overall budget was $10.8 million, of which $500,000 was raised by the Lassen Park Foundation for exhibits and orientation film which will be shown continuously at the Center.

National Parks preserve America's human and natural history. You can help us share the richness of Lassen with visitors from across our great land and abroad, by joining with us in contributing to park projects like the new Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center.  Our next major effort will be the restoration and improvement of the Lassen Peak Trail.
