About Us

Tuleyome is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit conservation organization based in Woodland, California. The word “Tuleyome” (pronounced too-lee-OME-ee) is a Lake Miwok Indian word that means “deep home place”. And that term “deep home place” exemplifies our deep connection to our environment, our communities and our regional public lands.

The Molok Luyuk Conservation Campaign is focused on expanding the Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument to include even more spectacular lands including the lands of the Molok Luyuk (Walker Ridge). With a focus on expanding the already broad support for protecting this region, sacred to the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation, this effort centers the tribe’s ancestral ties to the region and the proposed policy solutions will ensure that the tribe is a partner in the co-management of the area along with the Bureau of Land Management.

The coalition of organizations working on this campaign is broad and includes Sierra Club, California Native Plant Society, and many others. Great progress has been made to expand the Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument and we seek a talented organizer who can help the coalition take the campaign over the finish line.
