Lassen Volcanic National Park Waives Park Fee for National Public Lands Day


This Saturday, the nation comes together to celebrate National Public Lands Day, and The Lassen Volcanic Park is joining the festivities by opening its gates to all visitors with free admission.

Superintendent Jim Richardson invites everyone to take advantage of this opportunity to explore the park’s breathtaking landscapes and recreational activities. This day also provides a unique chance to witness the park’s resilient recovery after the Dixie Fire.

In honor of National Public Lands Day, a variety of activities await park-goers. You can participate in a guided hike along the Paradise Meadows trail, where vibrant fall colors await. For those seeking a deeper connection with nature, a session on shinrin-yoku, the practice of well-being through forest immersion, begins at the Hat Creek trailhead at 11:00 a.m.

Additionally, a collaborative weed removal project with the American Conservation Experience (ACE) team aims to combat invasive species like smooth brome and bull thistle, which thrive in post-fire environments, particularly in the Hat Creek drainage area.

National Public Lands Day extends its fee-free entrance offer to all National Park sites, as well as various federal agencies like the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Bureau of Land Management, the Bureau of Reclamation, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the U.S. Forest Service.
