All are welcome to join Tuleyome for its annual fundraiser on Friday, March 21, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Odd Fellows Hall, 415 Second St. in downtown Davis. This year’s event will focus on celebrating public lands, as 2014 is both the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act and the 150th anniversary of California’s state parks.

At this event, guests will enjoy heavy appetizers prepared by Inspiration Catering, along with beer, wine, soft drinks and dessert. The evening event also will include a silent auction, a few words from author and keynote speaker Doug Scott, and a short awards presentation to announce Tuleyome’s Donor of the Year, Volunteer of the Year and the Anne Schneider Lifetime Achievement Award.

Scott is the author of “Our Wilderness: America’s Common Ground” (2009) and “The Enduring Wilderness: Protecting Our Natural Heritage Through the Wilderness Act” (2004), both published by Fulcrum Publishing. He serves on the board of The Wilderness Land Trust and chairs the board of the National Wilderness Stewardship Alliance. In 1997, the Sierra Club presented him its highest honor, the John Muir Award.

Throughout his 30 years working for The Wilderness Society, the Sierra Club and The Pew Charitable Trusts’ Campaign for America’s Wilderness, Scott recognized that the real power in the political system is effective, timely grassroots action — volunteer power.

He lobbied Congress to protect more national parks and wilderness areas, the highlight being the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act of 1980, which doubled the size of the wild and scenic rivers system, national park system, national wildlife refuge system and national wilderness preservation system in one act.

In the early days of his career, Scott worked with Jim Eaton, now a Tuleyome board member, to help preserve the Snow Mountain Wilderness.

Proceeds from the fundraiser will go directly to benefit Tuleyome’s programs and efforts to protect extraordinary wild places in the region, get youths and families outdoors and promote land stewardship through habitat restoration, invasive species eradication, abandoned mine remediation and trail building and maintenance.

In the past, Tuleyome spearheaded the formal California State Wild and Scenic River designation for upper Cache Creek and worked with local congressmen to designate Cedar Roughs/Cache Creek Wilderness Areas and additions to Snow Mountain Wilderness.

The nonprofit’s current major campaign is to permanently protect the Berryessa Snow Mountain region. This includes 350,000 acres of federal public lands in Yolo, Lake, Napa, Mendocino and Solano counties.

Tickets are $60 each. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.tuleyome.org.
