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.

Visitor donations provide crucial financial support for special projects, interpretive services, and visitor experience improvement. You may donate to the park directly or through one of the park's partners including the Lassen Park Foundation and the Lassen Association.

Educational Bookstore purchases
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.
