Tuleyome’s “Nature and You” nature-based lecture series was originally established in 2014 and is now in its fourth year. The series is presented in partnership with the Yolo County Library system.

All lectures take place at the Mary L. Stephens Davis Branch Library in Davis, and are free to the public.  In 2018, the lectures will begin at 6:00 pm (instead of 6:30 p.m.). The upcoming lectures in the series include:

  • “The Giant Garter Snake” with Eric Hansen, April 26
  • “Other Snakes of California” with Brian Todd, May 24
  • “Wildfires and Their Aftermath” with Phil Burton and Paul Kimsey, June 28

Other lectures coming up later in the year include ones on building trails in the Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument, an overview of the Jepson Prairie Reserve, a lecture on noninvasive wildlife survey methods, and one on mycology and fungal ecology.

The series is hosted by Tuleyome, a nonprofit conservation organization based in Woodland, CA, as part of its Home Place Adventures program.  For more information about the lecture series go to:
