Success Stories

Thank You!

Lassen Park Foundation has been supporting improvements at our favorite National Park since 1984.  All those years of dedication and enjoyment would be nothing without the support of our donors and friends like you!  

 

Interpretive Intern Program

Visitor park experience is enhanced by museums, exhibits and guides to help explain the features of Lassen Volcanic National Park. Through its funding of interpretive and educational projects, the Lassen Park Foundation informs visitors and school groups about the park and inspires interest in and thought about science, nature and history. One of our key programs is the funding of summer and winter interpretive interns to help park visitors better experience the national park.

 

Volcano Adventure Camp

Lassen Park Foundation contributed over $475,000 in funds and hundreds of hours of staff and volunteer hours to complete construction on the parks' first Youth Camping Facility, the Volcano Adventure Camp, in 2016.  Today the Volcano Adventure Camp hosts hundreds of underserved youth every summer, educating and inspiring the next generation of park stewards. In 2020, the foundation plans to expand the campground to host additional youth groups.

 

Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center

Lassen Park Foundation contributed $500,000 in funds towards construction of the Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center (KYVC) and creation of visitor exhibits.  Lassen Park Foundation produced the film that introduces Lassen Volcanic National Park to new guests. This film, Lassen Volcanic National Park: The Story Behind the Landscape, screens in the Visitor Center and at the Loomis Museum, .  

 

Reach the Peak: Lassen Peak Trail Restoration

Rehabilitation of the park's signature trail began in 2010 and was completed in 2014.  The Foundation successfully reached its goal of $500,000 for this effort with the National Park Service and other partners contributing $1.7 million.
