Discover Lassen





Due to the continued COVID-19 pandemic, Lassen Park Foundation has decided to cancel Discover Lassen in-person event for 2021.  Lassen Park Foundation will be working closely with our park partners to produce a virtual event featuring our park rangers this summer. 

2022 Dates TBA - Discover Lassen is a two-day fundraising event to benefit Lassen Park Foundation.  The event focuses on encouraging guests to get to know Lassen Volcanic National Park (LAVO) for the first time or better than they already do.  This family-friendly event is done over a two-day weekend with the first day focusing on the north end of the park (near Mazanita Lake) and the second day focusing on the south end of the park (near the Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center).


Love Your Pet Non-Event

LPF's Event Committee enjoyed presenting a second year of our winter Non-Event.  National Love Your Pet Day was February 20, 2021. Pets are part of our families. They're dear to our hearts, and they love us with all of our faults, unconditionally. That's why we celebrated National Love Your Pet Day on February 20, 2021.  

We spend thousands of dollars on our pets every year. Food and healthcare for our little friends is a must, but sometimes we go a bit overboard. Pampering, clothing, toys, or pillows are just a few ways we splurge to show our love. This year we went back to the basics! Instead of shopping or paying for a day at the pet-spa, we spent some quality one-on-one time with ours pet and sent the money saved to Lassen Park Foundation instead. It's a win-win situation!
