The Lassen Annual Pass photo contest is held annually and is open to the public. The winning photograph was selected by park employees and volunteers from over 60 submissions. Mr. Rueb will receive photo credit and a $50 gift certificate from the Lassen Association to use at one of the park bookstores, and his photo will be featured on the 2008 Lassen Annual Pass.

Since 1998, an estimated $800 million has been retained by the NPS to accomplish projects such as rehabilitating historical structures, improving trails and campgrounds, replacing aging water and sewer systems, providing new exhibits and interpretive signs, providing accessibility to visitors with disabilities, and protecting natural and cultural resources.
