Represented in the park are all four types of volcanoes found in the world--shield, composite, cinder cone, and plug dome.

On May 22, 1915 there was an explosive eruption at Lassen Peak. It destroyed nearby areas and it rained volcanic ash as far away as 200 miles.

This explosion was the most powerful in a 1914-17 until the 1980 eruption of Mt. St. Helens. Lassen Peak is the largest of a group of volcanic domes that have erupted in the past 300,000 years.

Lassen Volcanic National Park has almost 300 species of vertebrates. This includes birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and fish.
