What We Do
The Tulare Basin Wildlife Partners (TBWP) work with partner agencies and organizations to conserve and restore critical Tulare Basin upland, wetland, and riparian habitats for people and wildlife.
The TBWP facilitates the engagement of partners, funders, and stakeholders in multi-benefit projects to promote ecological and economic health, sustain our agricultural heritage, and enhance the quality of life in the Tulare Basin for current and future generations.
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.
