Winter Ecology Snowshoe Program for School Groups
Programs are offered Wednesday - Friday, January 22 - April 5, 2014 at the Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center near the Southwest entrance of the park. Programs are generally 2-3 hours in length, however longer programs are available. Depending of snow conditions a Winter Survival and Snow Shelter program will also be offered in February and March.
The park supplies snowshoes for students and adults for use during the snowshoe walk program. There is no cost for the program and entrance fees will be waived. However, we do request a $1.00 donation per participant for maintenance and replacement of our snowshoes.
All programs are by reservation only. There are still open dates available for this winter/spring! For more information, or to make a reservation for you class call:

Brokeoff Mountain, seen here in Lassen Volcanic National Park, was once part of a much larger composite volcano, called Brokeoff Volcano, that towered 1000 feet above Lassen Peak and looked similar to Mount Shasta.
