Tuleyome has launched a Kickstarter campaign to publish a children’s nature book based on the organization’s popular “Tuleyome Tales.”

“Tuleyome Tales” are informative, educational, entertaining articles written predominantly by Tuleyome staff members and distributed to the local press as feature articles. Past articles have included coverage of native bees, local bird populations, slime mold, fire safety and outdoor recreation areas in the region.

The children’s book will take several of the tales and condense them to simple paragraphs with a bold photograph and a probing question for readers to answer.

Acknowledging that there is something of a “nature deficit” among young children in the region (as kids spend a good deal of time indoors with their computers and cell phones) Tuleyome seeks to engage children ages 6 to 12 with a book based on nature, animals, plant life and places in the local region.

Tuleyome wants to initially publish 300 copies of the book, which then will be made available to the public. The Kickstarter campaign is focused on gathering pledges and funds specifically for the publication if this book alone and ends on Aug. 31. For more information about the book, see Tuleyome’s Kickstarter page at http://kck.st/1nzhmAx.

Tuleyome is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit conservation organization based in Woodland. For more information, visit www.tuleyome.org or email [email protected]
