Tuleyome offers family adventures in your ‘home place’

Tuleyome, a local conservation group and supporter of the environment, has created a program for families to get outside and enjoy the outdoors together.

It’s called Home Place Adventures, and last year its youth program received a National Trails award for its work with youth organizations in Yolo County.

This summer, Tuleyome has created a program for families and adults. Each Home Place Adventures outing is an opportunity to get outside, connect with others and learn how to care for this place called home.

Here’s a list of the upcoming outings: Sign up by emailing info@homeplaceA.org.

* Why a Duck, 10 a.m. Saturday, June 1: A mystery set up by Mother Nature. The group will explore the lives of ducks and open several of the duck boxes at Conaway Ranch and count what’s inside. Will the boxes contain eggs, ducklings or perhaps the mother birds? For families and kids 5 and older, at the Conaway Ranch between Davis and Woodland

* Astronomy and Thoughts Unplugged, 7 p.m. Saturday, June 8: The Thoughts Unplugged series provides opportunities to get outside, express yourself on a particular topic and then sit back and listen to the thoughts and feelings of your neighbors. When the sky goes dark, sit back and look up at the stars as a local astronomer takes you on a tour of the night sky. For adults and children 10 and older, at the Conaway Ranch

* Canoe and Camp at Lake Solano, 3 p.m. June 15-16: A getaway trip for Dad (Father’s Day) and the whole family. Camp overnight at a private campground at Lake Solano and on Sunday morning, explore the lake in small groups by canoe. You’ll need to provide all your personal camping gear and food; a list will be sent to you on what to bring. For families and kids 5 and older, at Lake Solano west of Winters

* Follow the Path of Garbage, and Art From Recycled Materials, 10 a.m. Saturday, June 22: What happens to a plastic bottle thrown on the ground or in the trash? A visit to the Yolo County Landfill will help you see the big picture of garbage — where it goes, how it’s being recycled and the unbelievable stories of waste. Afterwards, participate in a simple art activity using recycled materials.  For families and kids 5 and older, at the Yolo County Landfill northeast of Davis

* All About Bees, 9 a.m. Saturday, June 29: Bees! Some people are afraid of them and swat at them; others have no idea what bees do. On this outing, a UC Davis beekeeper sheds more light on the wonderful world of bees: how they gather and store food and how human beings benefit from the work of the bees. Also, visit UC Davis’ Bee Haven. For families and kids 5 and older, at UC Davis

The suggested donation for each outing is $7 per person. Outings are free to Tuleyome members. One $35 membership covers the whole family. To sign up as a member, visit www.tuleyome.org or call 530-350-2599.
