As of April 2, 2019 the Tulare Basin Wildlife Partners is now officially the Tulare Basin Watershed Partnership, a California Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation! This evolution is the result of merging the goals of the TBWP and the Tulare Basin Watershed Connections Collaborative (TBWCC). Please continue to check in with us as we progress in our transition and stay tuned for updates and future upcoming events.
We look forward to continuing to serve the watersheds and those working within the Tulare Basin in creating resilience for nature and people!

The Tulare Basin Watershed Partnership mission and vision is to engage partners, stakeholders, and funders in headwaters to groundwater multi-benefit projects that enhance regional ecological and economic health, agricultural heritage, healthy waterways and wildlife habitat, and abundant clean water for nature and people.
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.
