Tuleyome’s Big Day of Giving Page

I finished the giving portal page for Tuleyome for this year’s Big Day of Giving (BIGDOG), and it was approved by the Sacramento Regional Foundation, so the page is now “live”.  I made to sure to highlight our upcoming Certified Naturalist course, along with all of the other things Tuleyome does.

I’ll be tweaking some of the images a little bit more and maybe add a shorter video before May 4th, but for right now things are looking pretty good.

I’ll be giving a presentation on what Tuleyome does for the BIGDOG at the Yolo County Nonprofit Leaders Alliance meeting on January 18th. (Read more HERE.)  Aaaand, I’ve been asked to mentor BIGDOG “puppies” (nonprofits who have never done a Big Day of Giving before) starting in February.  Busy, busy, busy!

And by the way, Happy New Year!

Mary K. Hanson is a breast cancer survivor who, at age 61, took coursework to become a Certified California Naturalist. The author of “The Chubby Woman’s Walkabout”™ blog, Ms. Hanson has also written nature-based feature articles published in regional newspapers, authored over ten books, including her "Cool Stuff Along the American" series of guide books, and has had her photographs featured in books, articles, calendars, on the American River Parkway Foundation’s Instagram stream, and even the White House blog. This year Ms. Hanson is helping to launch and teach a new Certified California Naturalist course through Tuleyome, in partnership with the University of California and the Woodland Library, so members of the public can themselves become certified as naturalists in the state. All of the photos seen on her website were taken by Ms. Hanson herself (unless noted otherwise) with moderate- to low-end photographic equipment more easily affordable to the everyday nature enthusiast. She also occasionally leads photo-walks through the American River Bend Park for the public and is sometimes available for public speaking.
