Lassen Park to Open Year-Round Visitor Center

Those who have known me a long time know of my long-standing interest in Lassen Volcanic National Park, only an hour away by car from my hometown of Redding, California. The National Park Service has announced that this Thursday, October 2, it will be celebrating the grand opening of the park’s first year-round visitor center. NPS will hold the official ceremony Thursday, and on Saturday, October 4 for public events and programs. The new Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center receives its name from the Mountain Maidu name for Lassen Peak which means “Snow Mountain.”

The new center will include a staffed information desk, exhibit hall, auditorium for the new park film, bookstore, gift sales, food services, first aid room, restrooms, amphitheater, and an after-hours backcountry registration and orientation vestibule. The Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center is also a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certified building and is expected to achieve the highest rating of platinum. More information is available from 530/595-4444, ext. 5130.
