Our Mission:

The Lassen Park Foundation provides philanthropic support to preserve and interpret the special natural and cultural resources of Lassen Volcanic National Park and its environs for present and future generations.


Our Core Values:

The work of the Lassen Park Foundation is inspired by "A Passion for Lassen." The Foundation's Directors and supporters have been challenged, reinvigorated and inspired by time spent in Lassen Volcanic National Park. We wish to share this gift with present and future generations by living up to the following values in our work together:

  • Committed to Future Generations: We extend a "Passion for Lassen" to future generations by providing meaningful opportunities for youth to explore this extraordinary natural environment. We are a partner for challenged youth, actively ensuring that they have opportunities to camp in the park.
  • Stewardship: We are committed to the effective stewardship of Lassen Volcanic National Park and its environs.
  • Inclusive and Diverse: We actively encourage diverse populations to enjoy Lassen, to attend our events, and to join our organization.
