Wildlife & Recreation

We could go on for days describing all of the wildlife and natural beauty of this striking area of Northern California. It would perhaps be easier if we allowed a few other sites on the web and the wonders of the Lassen area itself describe them to you. Hiking and River Rafting are among the many activities you may enjoy during your stay in Burney. Your visit to The Green Gables Motel Could include sightings of America’s National Symbol, the Bald Eagle, as well as osprey, deer, raccoon, bear, and white and Black Tailed Deer.
