Mission:

Protecting the wild heritage and agricultural heritage of the Northern Inner Coast Range and Western Sacramento Valley for existing and future generations.

Results:

The Berryessa Snow Mountain (BSM) area is one of the most biologically diverse regions in the state of California, yet it is least known. Tuleyome spearheaded the campaign to permanently protect the Berryessa Snow Mountain region, and our efforts paid off when, on july 10, 2015, President Obama designated the region as the Berryessa Snow Mountain national Monument. Our campaign received a great deal of media attention and was featured in article in the Los Angeles Times In addition to our Berryessa Snow Mountain campaign, our organization’s other goals as regional stewards and educators include: * Home Places Adventures Program: This program provides outdoor experiences and educational opportunities for children, families, adults and seniors, and has expanded from a summer-time program to a year-round program. * Our volunteer base has also expanded and we’ve been able to utilize them to rebuild habitat and build and maintain trails within our region. In the first six months of 2015, volunteers had already provided us with over 2500 hours of service! • Policy Development: We also continue our efforts to remediate mercury pollution throughout the region, and are participating in FireScape Mendocino, a stakeholder planning process with the Mendocino National Forest. * Tuleyome Land Conservation and Stewardship Program: We continue to build the Tuleyome Land Conservation Fund which provides an ability to move quickly when key conservation properties become available for fee purchase or conservation easements that permanently protect their ecological values. We are very proud to have received the Conservation Lands Foundation “2012 Conservation Leadership Award” presented at the Friends Rendezvous and the America Trails “2013 National Kids in the Outdoors Award” for our Home Place Adventures program getting underserved youth into the outdoors and the 2015 "Trail Worker Award" for Andrew Fulks (our board president) for the work done on the Berryessa Peak Trail.

Reviews for Tuleyome

Rating: 5 stars  

Tuleyome opens up the great outdoors to many who otherwise probably would not venture out. The people who work and volunteer for this group are fabulous, welcoming, and knowledgeable. I have gone on several of their sponsored hikes and always have a great time, meet new people, and get to explore new areas.

Tuleyome has worked hard to become more of a presence in the community over the past few years and has opened up the outdoors to a lot of people who might not be able to get out and about by themselves. Looking forward to seeing the Berryessa Snow Mountain region designated as a national monumnet in 2015!

I volunteered with Tuleyome for a while helping table at local farmer's markets. It was really fun telling everyone who stopped by all of the great things about the organization. Tuleyome is a land trust, they have a youth program, they work to re-mediate abandoned mines, they build and maintain trails in the region, and they are also working to permanently protect the Berryessa Snow Mountain region. This organization definitely deserves more recognition for all of the important work they do!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make it better known in Northern California.

Tuleyome is a wonderful organization. They do a lot of important work in the Berryessa Snow Mountain region and provide opportunities for people to get off their butts and explore the natural world around them.

Tuleyome is a conservation group involved in community growth (children and adults), as well as development of outdoor recreation areas. The group builds trails, works on easements and access to otherwise difficult sites, and has projects to clean up and restore (with native plants) recreation and borderline areas.
The group conducts a complex program of youth activities, helps with research on specific sites that may be endangered, and has worked on mercury mine clean-up.
Also, the group is active in supporting worthwhile conservation issues with both state and national congressional bodies.

Youth today aren't able to experience the surroundings of nature very often or let's say understand and appreciate it. Tuleyome has a youth program called Home Place Adventures that allow youth to experience such things. They go rafting, fishing, hiking and much more. I encourage schools and organizations to collaborate with them. What a great Non-Profit!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

expand throughout the state of California.

Tuleyome has programs to protect public lands and to get folks, particularly youth out into these wild places. They get things done and use our donations very effectively!

Tuleyome is a local non-profit that helps preserve open space, leads local hikes and clean-ups, and has a program that exposes inner-city youth to the joys of wilderness and conservation. It organizes trail building crews, stumps for appropriate conservation legislation, and holds events where art and conservation are blended.

While Tuleyome has many great projects the important thing for me is the ability to work with them to create new trails. They have a great vision for land stewardship and trail building in the Berryessa region. I work with the Napa branch.

Tuleyome not only protects land, they create future protectors of the land by teaching kids about conservation. They have a great youth outdoors program, and they also provide free hikes for the public.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand all of their outdoor programs and make them bigger and better.
