The 2013 FREE summer ranger-led programs season begins on June 15th and will last until September 2nd (Labor day). Attending a ranger-led program is a great way for families and friends to learn about nature and cultural history while participating in fun and exciting outdoor activities. Please call the visitor center at (530) 246-1225 or Ranger Jeff at (530) 242-3421 for the latest information on ranger-led programs. For upcoming special park events, click on Schedule of Events.
General Kayak Information: Reservations are required and can be made up to two weeks in advance of a tour date by calling (530) 242-3462. Volunteers are usually available to take your call from 9 am to 1 pm on Monday and Wednesday through Saturday. Reservation can only be made by talking directly to a kayak volunteer. However, due to the popularity of the kayak programs, you may not always be able to get through and unfortunately left messages will not secure a spot on a kayak tour. Please keep trying or call back at a less busy time. Your patience towards the park volunteers is greatly appreciated.
