Scientific Research

As in many of these examples, the National Park budget is not large enough to address all of the park’s management and scientific concerns. The Lassen Park Foundation provides supplementary funds to do scientific research not included in the park’s operating budget, such as:

  • Overflights of the national park to map aspen groves
  • Studies of forest health 
  • Geologic studies in the Warner Valley
