The Tulare Basin Wildlife Partners was recently awarded an Edison International Grant!
Funds awarded through the Edison International Grant will go towards furthering the Atwell Island Project-Alpaugh-Allensworth Nature Trail (AAAT) Project, the Allensworth and Alpaugh Work Based Learning (A+A WBL) Program, and the ongoing work of the Tulare Basin Watershed Connection Collaborative (TB WCC).
TBWP is grateful for the opportunity provided by Edison International to continue to grow our grassroots initiatives here in the Tulare Basin!
Engage partners, funders, and stakeholders in multi-benefit projects to promote ecological and economic health, sustaining our agricultural heritage, and enhancing the quality of life in the Tulare Basin for current and future generations.
Create a healthy regional watershed with ecologically functional waterways, wetlands and uplands that provide abundant clean water for both people and wildlife.
Where We Work
Located in California's southern San Joaquin Valley, the Tulare Basin encompasses portions of Fresno, Kern, Kings, and Tulare Counties. More than 16 rivers and creeks flow from surrounding mountains into the Basin’s small lakes and wetlands, which once comprised the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi River, the historic Tulare Lake. The watershed is bounded on the north by the San Joaquin River, on the west by the crest of the Inner Coast Range, on the east by the crest of the Sierra Nevada, and on the south by the crest of the Tehachapi range. This watershed is approximately 134 miles east to west, 163 miles north to south, covers almost 22,000 square miles, and ranges in elevation from 163 feet above sea level at Mendota Pool to 14,505 feet on the summit of Mt. Whitney.
