NORTHERN CALIFORNIA – The next lecture in Tuleyome’s “Natures & You” series will be held online on Thursday, Feb. 25.

The lecture will begin at 7 p.m. via Zoom.

Dr. Tom Batter of UC Davis and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife will discuss, “Tule Elk in the Berryessa Snow Mountain Area and Across California.”

The tule elk, an endemic California subspecies, has a complex natural history intertwined with the activities of both native and immigrant peoples.

Presumed extinct by the mid-19th century, tule elk have since received over a century of intense management.

Joint efforts between public and private entities have resulted in remarkable increases in tule elk abundance and distribution across California, representing one of the greatest conservation success stories of our time.

Batter will discuss the ecology, natural history and modern management practices of California’s tule elk.
