Tuleyome hires O’Hara as fundraiser

Brendan O’Hara of Davis has been hired as development officer for Tuleyome, a regional nonprofit agency that recently celebrated 10 years of conservation work.

O’Hara’s 15 years of conservation experience will aid Tuleyome’s growth as it embarks on new goals for the years ahead, said Sara Husby-Good, executive director.

Tuleyome has offices in Woodland and Napa. Its public education programs include permanently protecting the Berryessa Snow Mountain region, land stewardship programs (including invasive species eradication and abandoned mine remediation), and Home Place Adventures, composed of a Youth Outdoor Exploration Program, Nature’s Theater and Tuleyome Trails.

O’Hara earned a bachelor’s degree from Sacramento State in geography with an emphasis on geographic information systems and remote sensing. He was offered a position as a GIS analyst focused on mapping projects in Alaska. There he spent five years creating high-resolution land cover maps of areas of concern in the Kuskokwin River Valley, partnering with the Bureau of Land Management, Alaska Fish and Game, Department of Defense, U.S. Fish and Wildlife and Native Burroughs.

O’Hara also has worked as a regional director of fundraising with Ducks Unlimited, and most recently as the director of development for the California Waterfowl Association.

Alaska fieldwork cemented O’Hara’s love of the outdoors, as well as his passion to discover more about wild places and protect those in his own back yard.

On days off, O’Hara said he enjoys spending time with his wife and children outdoors.

“My family loves hiking the Stebbins Cold Canyon Trail, rafting Cache Creek and exploring the wild places of California,” he said. “Being able to share that with folks and enlist their support in protecting our public lands is important to me.”

“I can’t wait to start meeting all of the amazing people who want to help cultivate Tuleyome’s programs,” O’Hara added. “I’m very excited to get involved and contribute to the mission of protecting the wild and agricultural heritage of the Northern Inner Coastal Range and Western Sacramento Valley for existing and future generations. It’s inspiring to see that so many people in our region care about protecting public lands.”
