Dixie Fire Recovery

Lassen Resilience

 

 

"Lassen Resilience" is the uplifting tagline adopted by park partners Lassen Association and Lassen Park Foundation to inspire post-fire giving in support of treasured park resources and facilities that may not benefit sufficiently from federal funding. 100% of Lassen Resilience fundraising will be used in-park to respond to the impacts of the Dixie Fire.

The Recovery Effort

Lassen Resilience is a combined fundraising campaign by park partners, Lassen Association and Lassen Park Foundation. 100% of funds raised through Lassen Resilience will be used in-park to respond to the impacts of the Dixie Fire. Park resources and facilities will benefit where federal funding may not be able to accomplish desired outcomes.

History

The Dixie Fire started on July 13, 2021 in Feather River Canyon southeast of Lassen Volcanic National Park. The fire went through parts of Lassen and Plumas National Forests, Lassen Volcanic National Park, and five counties: Butte, Lassen, Plumas, Shasta and Tehama. As of 9/21/21 the park's website reported that 73,067 acres burned within the park (68% of the park's total acreage). 

Damage to the Park

Of the facilities damaged, the park has reported that two bungalow units and two outbuildings at Drakesbad Guest Ranch were damaged or destroyed, as was the Mt. Harkness Lookout. Seven of the eight cabins at Juniper Lake were destroyed, including six in-holder cabins and one NPS cabin.

Trail infrastructure was also damaged. These included 5 feet of the boardwalk near the Warner Valley Trailhead, the Kings Creek Falls overlook, and two of the three Mill Creek Falls Trail bridges.  As of September 30, there were still areas of the park to inspect before additional damaged struture reports would be available.
