Dark Sky Festival
Along with Lassen Volcanic National Park, the National Park Service turns 100 in 2016. Join us in celebrating a legacy of protection, preservation, and enjoyment at Lassen and over 400 other NPS units. To celebrate the centennial, we invite you to Find Your Park through special experiences at Lassen Volcanic and national park sites worldwide.
Earn a commemorative bandana just by hiking and burning calories! Participants can pick up a brochure at an entrance station, the Loomis Museum, or the Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center. Once you've completed the challenge, bring your brochure to the Loomis Museum or Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center to receive your free bandana.
