Cache Creek Conservancy supports Cache Creek preservation,
restoration, and enhancement of the watershed.

The Return of Tule on Tuesdays
Tule Tuesdays are back! The Cache Creek Conservancy brings this popular series back to the Nature Preserve beginning in June. Expert basket weaver Ardith Read (Yosemite Mewuk & Yokut Indian) leads the classes that include discussions about traditional methods of cultivation, uses, and hands-on learning of weaving techniques. Read's baskets are on display at the Smithsonian and DeYoung Museums.

You'll find this a rewarding experience whether you are a novice, beginner or expert basket weaver.  The first session is a pre-requisite for remaining sessions because it covers traditional gathering and weaving etiquette that sets the stage for future classes.

Cost is $60 per session or $200 for all four sessions.

Thank you for your donations during the Big Day of Giving! Thanks to your generosity we were able to raise $8,300 to help the Conservancy provide a healthy natural environment to ensure our children's future and help our community thrive.
