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!
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!
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.
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!
