Support Your Park
Volunteers are important members of the Lassen Volcanic National Park team. Support your park by giving the gift of your time and expertise for a day, a week, or longer. Read more about volunteer opportunities at Lassen.
You can also support your park through learning. Items purchased from the Lassen Association educational bookstores make great educational souvenirs for you and all profits from sales going directly to the park.
