The week ends on April 29 with National park Rx Day. This “prescription” program promotes the growing movement of prescribing parks and nature to patients to improve human health. Visitors are encouraged to walk, hike, or bike sections of the park highway that have been cleared of snow, but are not yet open to vehicles. The status of road and clearing progress can be viewed at go.nps.gov/lavo/snowclearing. With the exception of the Manzanita Lake Area, most trails in the park are still snow-covered.

You can explore Lassen through our new online gallery at npgallery,nps.gov/lavo. Browse through more than 8,500 images spanning early park history to present day. The collection includes photographs taken between 1920 and 1954 by the forest NPS Chief Photographer, George A. Grant. Also included are visitor submissions to the Lassen Annual Pass Photo Contest and breathtaking images of Lassen’s dark, night sky captured largely by park volunteers.

The theme for National Park Week in 2018 is Park Stars, celebrating everything from starry skies to superstar volunteers, park features, and resources.
