Lassen Volcanic National Park entrance fees will be waived today and tomorrow in celebration of National Park Week, coinciding with Earth Day.

This free entry will be in addition to the other fee-free days, including: National Park Service’s 98th birthday on August 25, National Public Lands Day on September 27 and Veterans Day on November 11. The fee-free dates do not include other fees for camping, reservations, or use of concessions.

“Visitors can enjoy a spring visit during National Park Week at Lassen by hiking along some of the lower elevation trails or skiing and snowshoeing in the higher elevations,” Superintendent Darlene Koontz told the National Park Service.

The 2014 spring highway opening has begun at Lassen Volcanic National Park. A ten-mile section of the scenic highway is open to the Devastated Area to vehicle traffic on the Manzanita Lake side of the park. The road crews are also plowing from the south entrance. According to a park service press release, the park highway through the park should be open prior to the Memorial Day holiday weekend, weather depending.
