With shorter days and a chilly nip in the air, we know fall has arrived and winter is not too far off.

As the season changes, so do the habits of wildlife. Bears stock up on calories for winter hibernation, birds migrate to warmer climates and wild turkeys seem to come out in droves.

While these wild game birds may seem harmless and approachable, they can cause problems. Many homeowners can’t resist feeding them. What starts out as innocent fun can become a nuisance if the birds start destroying flower and vegetable gardens, leaving their droppings on patios and decks or roosting on cars where they may scratch the paint.

“We are looking forward to winter as the autumn season comes to an end,” said Lassen Volcanic National Park Superintendent Darlene M. Koontz. “Lassen Volcanic National Park offers unparalleled opportunities for winter recreation. We will reopen the park road during these times of passing storms when possible, but soon the park road will be snow-covered and open for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.”

  Currently the park road is open to the Devastated Area from the north entrance and to Sulphur Works from the south entrance. Visitors should contact the park or visit the park website for the current status of the road.
