2020 Events

Lassen Park Foundation's board and staff produce fundraising events to supports the Foundation's overall programming. These events are open to the public and held at various locations in and around Lassen Volcanic National Park.   


Discover Lassen

Due to social distancing requirements and group size restrictions caused by COVID-19, Lassen Park Foundation has decided to cancel Discover Lassen for 2020.  This event will return in July, 2021. 

2021 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).

Leap Day Non-Event

LPF's Event Committee decided to come up with a winter event in 2020, and we held the first edition of it on Leap Day, February 29, 2020!  Well, it was sort of an /event. 

Lassen Park Foundation invites guests annually to NOT come to an event.  LPF would rather its supporters enjoy playing in the snow at Lassen, or curling up in front of the fire with a good book and a cup of hot cocoa.  Instead of all the expenses of attending an event (fancy outfit, event admission, etc.) LPF requests guests to send a donation of what WOULD have spent if they came to an event.
