Lassen Volcanic National Park
By: Evan M. Welsh
In August of 1916, Lassen Volcanic was founded. That was one year before the titanic Lassen Peak started to erupt. It was founded by Native Americans, and they called it “The Lassen area”, but we’ll get to that later.
Size and Native Americans
Like I said in the paragraph before this, Native Americans called it “The Lassen Area”. On a side note, “Lassen” in German means, “To allow or let in.” Lassen Volcanic is 106,000 acres and is located in Mineral, California. That is 513,040,000 square yards!
What Native Americans Probably hunted
Native Americans camped at Lassen in warmer months. They most-likely hunted: Birds, mammals, amphibians, reptiles, and fish because that's the wildlife there.
