NORTHERN CALIFORNIA – Tuleyome is once again providing a Certified California Naturalist course in partnership with the University of California. Tuleyome’s Naturalist course, which begins in January 2021, introduces students to the wonders of California’s unique ecology and engages them in the study of, and fosters a sense of stewardship of, our region’s natural communities.

The program uses hands-on learning, problem-solving, citizen science and volunteer service to build an appreciation for and deep understanding of the Northern Inner Coast Range Mountains and the Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument region.

No special degrees or previous naturalist experience is required.

Class time is set aside to help students learn how to accurately identify some of the region’s most common plant, animal, and insect species.

Participants are also eligible for four academic credits through UC Davis Extension for an additional fee.

Tuleyome’s 2021 naturalist classes start Jan. 15, 2021, and continue for 10 consecutive Fridays from noon to 4 p.m. Classes are scheduled to take place in Woodland but with the current public safety restrictions due to COVID-19, preparations have been made to hold virtual classes.

In addition to the 10 classroom dates, students are required to attend three field trips, scheduled for Saturdays during the class. These in-field classes help students understand and apply what is learned in the classroom and how to collect data and interact with nature.

Visit Tuleyome’s website at www.tuleyome.org/projects/calnat for more information and to sign up.

Tuleyome is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that engages in advocacy and active stewardship with diverse communities to conserve, enhance, restore and enjoy the lands in the region.
