Bill started visiting the South Fork area as a teenager with his family in the late 1950’s; coming to Hume Lake, fishing Ten Mile Creek and the lower reaches of the Kings above Boyden Cavern. In the 1990’s it was Bill’s experience as a hydrologist with the Fed’s (USGS). It was his desire to give back to this area that created the Friends of the South Fork.

|Gary and Karen Tuttle
Gary began visiting the South Fork with his father Adrian “The Mayor” Tuttle in the late 1940’s as a small boy and even worked a summer season as a teenager at the Cedar Store. In the later portions of the 1960’s he brought his then wife-to-be Karen to join his experiences along the South Fork. Their growing family joined them along the way, with annual trips to the region. Gary continues to participate with the clean-up events a few times each year.
Mike started visiting the South Fork at the age of 5 week old and has continued visiting & camping most years since 1973. He started participating with the litter clean-up events in about 2010 and helps with website and Facebook maintenance & communication.
