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 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!

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.

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

I can't think of anything.

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.

Before moving to the Sacramento Valley, I had never heard of Tuleyome or the Berryessa Snow Mountain region they are fighting so hard to protect. Having gotten to know this organization, I am impressed by their tenacity, their willingness to promote balance between the conservation of public lands and the rights of private landowners, and their dedication to their mission. They're active in the community; they promote healthy life-styles; they work to build and maintain trails; and are also doing some mercury mine remediation to help remove mine-created toxins for our waterways and landscapes. They're an impressive group. I wholly support Tuleyome!
