Our Values

Why It Matters

How we manage our resources matters. We want every person who benefits from the Tuolumne River to know that their food, drinking water and ecosystem depends upon the health of the river.

Tuolumne River Trust

We are the voice of the river.  The Tuolumne [too-ALL-oh-me] River Trust is an environmental nonprofit representing the Tuolumne River from its headwaters in the Sierra Nevada, through the Central Valley, and all the way to San Francisco Bay.

We are fighting for the river so that it will once again teem with fish and wildlife and be safe for drinking, fishing, and swimming for generations to come.

We are funded by members and people like you. Since 1981, we have promoted river stewardship through advocacy, collaboration, education, and restoration projects.

"If you spend time in nature, then you see the impact we’re having – that’ll ring more true than any policy change. When people realize it’s important, they’ll protect it.”
