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 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.
