Tulare Basin Wildlife Partners works with a variety of experts to share additional planning and conservation resources with agencies, agricultural associations, private landowners, elected officials, and others interested in conserving land and water in the Tulare Basin. Over time, the organization will post links to presentations, publications, and further information below.

- On October 6, 2010, Secretary for Natural Resources Lester Snow hosted a policy summit titled “The Future of Natural Resource Management.” The purpose of the summit was to facilitate discussion and debate within the natural resource management and environmental community regarding policy, legislation and finance strategies that would lead to better integration of resource management activities. Local, state and federal government agencies, conservation organizations, industry representatives and other interested stakeholders attended the summit.
