Address:

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.

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.

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!

expand throughout the state of California.
