By From page A10 | April 08, 2013

ANDERSON — The Lassen Park Foundation (LPF) is inviting groups that help children in need to apply for Youth Camping Grants by May 1.

“Last year, we awarded 26 grants to groups of challenged youth from Northern California and Southern Oregon,” said LPF Chairman John Koeberer.  “Each grant provides up to $1,000 to take kids camping in Lassen Volcanic National Park.   Often, this is the first camping experience and the first visit to a national park for these children.”

Information about applying for an LPF Youth Camping Grant can be obtained by calling 530-378-2600, emailing [email protected]or visiting www.lassenparkfoundation.org.

The Lassen Park Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization that provides philanthropic support to preserve and interpret the natural and cultural resources of Lassen Volcanic National Park and its environs, for present and future generations.  Areas of focus include youth programs, enhanced interpretive and educational activities, trail restoration, wildlife research, and cultural development.
