Silver Spur Ranch Overnight

Tuleyome’s Silver Spur Ranch Property is located in the heart of Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument. This property provides vital ecosystems and a corridor for wildlife to move north to south and east to west in the monument. The southern end of the property has steep cliffs and narrow canyons. Benmore Canyon is the main feature of the property and is dominated by large valley oaks. The North Fork of Cache Creek flows through the northwestern corner of the property providing a wonderful riparian ecosystem.

Tuleyome purchased the property in 2016 with an eye towards bringing our members to this wonderful property. This is the first event to Silver Spur to explore and enjoy the property! After setting up camp, participants will have the opportunity to explore Silver Spur with certified California Naturalist, Nate Lillge, Tuleyome’s Adventures and Engagement Director.

Participants are responsible for their own food, water, and camping equipment. (There is no potable water on site.) Please see the COVID-19 guidelines below to ensure everyone’s safety. This event may be canceled due to health and safety guidelines.

Contact Nate Lillge (nlillge@tuleyome.org) with questions.
