Lassen Volcanic National Park offers a wide variety of Ranger-led and Junior Ranger programs throughout the summer and winter seasons. View information about ranger-led program below or learn more about special events.
Ranger-led Snowshoe Walks
Saturdays and Sundays January 7 through April 2, 2017
Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center | 1:30 - 3:30 pm
Ranger-led snowshoe walks are an excellent way to learn or practice snowshoeing techniques and explore Lassen in its winter form. The walks cover 1-2 miles of moderately strenuous terrain. They don’t follow a trail—the hike is an off-trail exploration through the forests near the Visitor Center. At the beginning of each snowshoe walk, a ranger will demonstrate how to put on snowshoes and how to move around. Once the basic techniques are covered, the group heads out into the snow and the adventure begins!

Meet at the Manzanita Lake boat ramp
Each year Lassen's natural resource team uses nets to capture and band migratory birds. This monitoring provides information on population abundance and health. Join us for a public bird banding demonstration. Meet a ranger at the Manzanita Lake boat ramp area at one of the times list above for a five minute walk to the banding site. Don't forget your camera!
