TuCare stands for Tuolumne County Alliance for Resources and Environment, Inc. It was established to enlighten and advise the public on conservation and the wise use of our natural resources.
TuCare is also involved in issues related to public and private lands usage which TuCARE feels is essential for a vital and functioning local, and state economy.
One annual event for the organization is the annual TuCare Dinner and Auction, which is always open to the general public. The dinner will begin at 6:30pm, with cocktails starting at 5:30pm.
Proceeds from the event will benefit TuCare’s programs including “Tours For Kids”. Those are educational programs for school children, which at times, includes hands-on field trips.
